French World Cup winner Lucas Hernandez is set to be the most expensive left-back in history when his five-year deal with Bayern Munich is activated on July 1, 2019.
La Liga side Atletico Madrid will pocket 80 million euros (around £68 million) from the deal taking Hernandez to Bayern Munich.
Former Bayern Munich defender Gernot Rohr was delighted that his former club agreed terms with Hernandez, and believes they are sending a message to their Bundesliga rivals with the defender’s acquisition.
”Bayern is not used to spending so much, everything is still under control. Bayern needed a strong signal to send to the competition.”
Super Eagles coach Rohr was on the books of Bayern Munich from 1972-1974.
