Bayern sports director Hasan Salihamidzic confirmed last weekend that Bayern would like to extend the contract with defender Lucas Hernandez ahead of schedule. According to current reports, the Frenchman also tends to stay with the German record champions.
In an interview with “BILD” yesterday, Sunday, Salihamidzic revealed that initial talks had already taken place between Bayern and Lucas Hernandez’s agent. According to reports, the contract talks are not yet really concrete. According to “SPORT1” information, however, this could change in the near future.
As the TV station wants to know, negotiations could really pick up speed in September. Accordingly, Salihamidzic would like to meet with both Hernandez and his management in the coming weeks. The 45-year-old would like to have planning security at an early stage and not get into time difficulties, as was the case recently with Niklas Süle and David Alaba.
Hernandez has no thoughts of leaving
Not only Bayern would like to extend the contract with Hernandez, the central defender would also like to stay with the German record champions in the long term. According to “SPORT1”, the 26-year-old received a request from Paris Saint-Germain in the summer, but rejected it. There is also no truth to the rumors about a possible return to Spain. The Frenchman feels comfortable in Munich and also appreciates working with Julian Nagelsmann.
