BERLIN (Reuters) – Bayern Munich on Wednesday signed defender Lucas Hernandez from Atletico Madrid from next season in a move worth 80 million euros (68.10 million pounds), the German champions said.
The 23-year-old defender, who was part of the 2018 World Cup-winning French team, is expected to bolster the German club’s defence and boost their chances of European success that has been eluding them since 2013.
