Bayern Munich Completed The Signing Of Atlético Madrid's Lucas Hernández 'A Few Weeks Ago'

Bayern Munich Completed The Signing Of Atlético Madrid's Lucas Hernández 'A Few Weeks Ago'

Lucas Hernández will leave Atlético Madrid this summer after early reports suggest that Bayern Munich completed the signing 'a few weeks ago.'

That's according to Foot Mercato's Dahbia Hattabi, who has reported that the Bavarians had triggered his €80m release clause.

It is also added that half of the fee has been paid to Atlético Madrid, with the remaining €40m to be sent to the Spanish club in the summer.

The 23-year-old Frenchman, who had previously been linked with a move to Manchester United, has signed either a four- or five-year deal with the German club.

Hernández's arrival would be a club-record signing for Bayern Munich, smashing the €41.5m paid to Lyon for Corentin Tolisso in 2017.

While an official announcement has not been made, the reigning Bundesliga champions were linked with the Atlético defender in the January transfer window and were contemplating whether to trigger his release clause.

Instead, Bayern Munich turned their attention to World Cup-winning Frenchman Benjamin Pavard, who was signed in January from VfB Stuttgart on a five-year contract.

Considering Franck Ribéry's future remains uncertain and Arjen Robben set to leave the club in the summer, the Bayern Munich head coach has also been interested in signing Gareth Bale from Real Madrid.

Renato Sanches could be another player ready to exit the club in the summer, especially after the 21-year-old midfielder admitted that he was struggling to secure regular football under Kovač.

"I'm not happy here, I work a lot, but I'm not allowed to play," he told Kicker.

"I want to play more, maybe at a different club, I have to worry about that."
