Breaking: Bayern Munich set to confirm first summer signing

The Bayern Munich hierarchy revealed that the manager would be backed with funds in the summer window and apparently they have made their first move.

Bayern Munich have reportedly already agreed personal terms with Atletico Madrid’s World Cup-winning defender, Lucas Hernandez.
The German club will meet the 23-year-old’s £69m buyout clause, a fee that will make him Bayern’s record signing.

Hernandez on the Bayern Munich speculation


Lucas has suggested his long-term future may not lie at Atletico. This comes after Bayern are expected to resume their interest in the 22-year-old at the end of the season. “To be totally honest, my personal situation changed and I had to make a decision that wasn’t all about me,” Lucas said to AS of the Bayern speculation.

“It’s true that in the transfer window there was a bid from another major European side. But the first thing I did was relay that to Atletico. They made it clear that it was not an option they wanted to contemplate. We all agreed to review my situation before the end of the current season.”

Benjamin Pavard spoke about Lucas Hernandez moving to Bayern. The 22-year-old, however, shared his thoughts with SportBild on Hernandez. “We are very good friends. I think it would be fantastic if Lucas also came to Bayern. He proved that he is a great player. First together for France, then for Bavaria , that would make me proud. But of course, that’s a matter between Bayern and Lucas.”

“Bayern WILL spend big”

Hoeness had informed that the club and the supervisory board had agreed at their last session that they will make serious investments in the squad for the coming 2019-2020 season.

“I moreover can report to you that the club and supervisory board decided very clearly at the last session that we will invest next year in a rather grand style. Because next year, the reservations that I previously mentioned regarding the somewhat older players who then may potentially retire, will no longer be there.”

“And the club,then, will have the room as well as the necessary capital to reinforce the team so that we will be more than a match for every opponent in the Bundesliga and most international opponents. That must be the ambition.”

Author’s Take

Bayern Munich have always worked on a moderate budget. There are one of those rare superclubs who have zero debt. But in the past few seasons, the Bavarians have been cought up in Bundesliga. They have also failed to impress in the European stage. It is time they flex their financial muscle and Lucas Hernandez might be the first of many arrivas through the doors at the Allianz Arena.
