Bayern Munich has offered Manchester City Lucas Hernández as they accelerate their push to negotiate a deal for Leroy Sané. For over a year, the Germans have been attempting to guard the ex-Schalke attacker. Last summer, Munich came near a contract-just for Germany to get a drawn-out physical issue in the Group Shield final. And now the Bavarians are offering Hernandez, 24, as a sugar according to SportWitness.
The Frenchman can play at left-back or focus half and that will be important to City manager Pep Guardiola, who wants to be spread in each of those positions. Sane has made it clear that he wants to return to Germany. Munich is planning to close the contract in July.
With just a year left on Sane ‘s deal, he is gambled by city boss to see him out next season and then go on a free transfer. Just a year ago Hernandez joined Atletico Madrid for £72 m. In any case, Alphonso Davies ‘s development means they can afford to lose the French defender.
Guardiola, after failing to replace Vincent Kompany, made an inside half of its top need.
Aggravating that, Aymeric Laporte has spent quite a bit of this season with injury uninvolved.
Since an €80 m move from Atlético Madrid 13 months ago, Hernandez has battled for wellness and structure and the development of Alphonso Davies has made him a spare part at the Allianz.
He has now been offered to several major European clubs and has even been examined for Sané in negotiations with Manchester City.
