Lucas Hernández To Leave Atlético Madrid After Bayern Munich Trigger €80m Release Clause

Bayern Munich have made a major step in signing Lucas Hernández from Atlético Madrid after triggering the defender’s €80m release clause.

Marca reports that the 22-year-old Frenchman played his last match for the Spanish club against Deportivo Alavés, with him being forced off the pitch due to injury.

The French international, who was previously a target for Manchester United, is contracted with Los Rojiblancos until 2024.

However, it looks like Hernández is apparently ready to leave the Wanda Metropolitano behind and pen a four-year deal with the reigning Bundesliga champions.

Should the deal be completed in January, then Hernández would become the Bavarians’ club-record signing.

The club smashed their previous record when they
completed the signing of Corentin Tolisso in 2017 for €41.5m from Lyon.

Should Hernández move to Bayern Munich?
