Report: Bayern and Hernandez agree to contract extension

Transfer expert Pedro Almeida reports that Lucas Hernandez and FC Bayern München are prepared to extend the French defender's working papers through 2027. 
Despite the fact that he may not appear in a Bayern tricot for the duration of the season, Germany's record champions are apparently prepared to seal a long-term arrangement with French defender Lucas Hernandez. The French international, often the subject of outgoing transfer rumors, will reportedly ink a new deal to keep him in Bavaria through 2027.

The 26-year-old joined the FCB in the summer of 2019 for a record transfer fee of €80 million. Hernandez has since made 74 league appearances for Bayern in the intervening three-and-half seasons, scoring no league goals but still pocketing six assists. Various injuries limited his involvement to seven league deployments this year.

The natural center-halve, who also frequently works as a left-back, has seen his estimated market worth downtick to €50 million. Hernandez's current deal was set to expire after next year. Portuguese transfer expert Pedro Almeida notes that negotiations on the new contract are all wrapped up.
