It’s said that Bayern Munich purchased the defender Lucas Hernandez from Spanish club Atletico Madrid. In recent days, the rumor has been denied by FCB (Bayern Munich). Sources reveal that the defender Hernandez will move to a German champion for €80m in the winter transfer window.
The La Liga club published their statement, which sheds lights on the information published by Marca on Bayern Munich. They explicitly denied the supposed deal. It’s only rumors and the footballer will not leave FCB and move to a German Champion. In addition, FCB also denied the supposed deal with German side, because of harmonious relations between FCB and Atletico Madrid this afternoon.
Atletico Madrid also clarifies and states that the Lucas Hernandez was still a footballer of Spanish side and he will not leave the team right now. Actually, there is no need to worry about such information. They are creating a team rather than selling it. Marca also states that the French footballer, winner of World Cup, reached a four-year contract with Bundesliga side, because he was told his great significance in the team. Marca also reported that FCB will fully pay buyout clause in his professional contract.
It is regulated that all footballers must be given a specific price in professional contract. Such a regulation allows a football player could be bought for fear of a deal violating wishes of related parties. In December, 2014, Hernandez completed his debut in Atletico Madrid kit, and established himself as a regular of Diego Simeone’s team. He has made great contributions to Europa League success last season prior to winning a spot in the French team.
In case the supposed deal comes true, Hernandez will become a expensive defender in history, second to Virgil van Dijk. In January, 2018, Virgil van Dijk moved to Liverpool for £75m.
The transfer window is around the corner. All football clubs in Europe are planning for businesses in January. We will delve into deals right now. At first, we need to know needs of every football club. Manchester City features two football players in every position. Thus, a competent defender and a left-back would be on the list of purchasing.
The critical position in the plan of Pep Guardiola lies in midfielders, who act as the focus in defense and attacking. Although Fernandinho’s performances in the position is perfect, but it’s a high risk to keep this 33-year-old football player, because any injury could be a disaster for him and the team. The only left-back was ruled out of football games until February. In addition, two replacements Fabian Delph and Oleksandr Zinchenko performed well in the position.
Who is the most probable person? It’s said that all newly signed football player would not emerge in the transfer window. Man City’s boss is also aware their week areas in midfield and would like to get the Italian football player in the summer. Ahead of this purchasing, he chose to follow Maurizio Sarri from Napoli to Chelsea.
