Bayern Munich deal for Atletico Madrid defender on track

Bayern Munich’s deal for Atletico Madrid defender Lucas Hernandez is on track.

Marca says Lucas will play at Bayern Munich starting next January, the Germans jumping ahead of two of the most important and powerful teams in Europe, Real Madrid and Manchester United, in order to capture the defender’s services.

It’s already known that Atletico’s neighbours have, on two occasions, knocked on the Frenchman’s door with the intention of repeating the move he already made with his brother Theo in the summer of 2017.

In fact, Real proposed to sign the player (who then had a clause of 55 million) at that point, but Simeone convinced him to stay as a rojiblanco.

The player hasn’t commented on the report yet, but he did break his silence on Thursday by sharing a photo on social media.

He uploaded a photo on Twitter which showed him sitting at a table with his current teammates during Atletico Madrid’s Christmas dinner, which was held on Wednesday.
