?Bayern Munich have reportedly moved one step closer in negotiations with Atletico Madrid’s World Cup winning full-back Lucas Hernandez, as they ram up their efforts to bring the player to the Allianz Arena on a five-year-deal in the summer.
Rumours surrounding the defender’s future have been rumbling on for a number of months, but the Bundesliga leaders appear to be making inroads in their efforts to sign Hernandez, despite no final agreement from both parties.
As reported by ?RMC Sport
Born in Marseille, the defender joined the youth set up at ?Atletico in 2007. Hernandez broke into the ?La Liga side’s first team during the 2015/16 season, since going on to make 110 appearances under Simeone – claiming a Europa League and European Super Cup trophy in the process. Furthermore, the Frenchman played in every game for Les Bleus as France won the World Cup in Russia last year.
Predominantly a left-back, Hernandez is equally capable of performing in a central role in the back line, and has been a regular feature at the Wanda Metropolitano this season.
