Change perfect: Hernández signs with PSG

French international Lucas Hernández is leaving FC Bayern Munich and, as expected, joining Paris Saint-Germain. The 27-year-old defender has signed a five-year contract with the French football champions until 2028.

According to reports, the German record champions will receive around 50 million euros including bonuses. This would make the 27-year-old the most expensive departure in the Munich club's history. “I've been waiting to come to PSG for a long time and now it's finally happening. It's a very special day for me and I'm very happy to be here," said Hernández in a club statement from the French on Sunday.

Hernández, who still had a contract on the Isar until the summer of 2024, had already expressed his desire to change to the Munich management team weeks ago. “We would like to thank Lucas Hernández for four very successful years together. He always gave his all, his fighting nature and his passion always impressed us,” said Bavaria’s CEO Jan-Christian Dreesen.

Successor is ready

Hernández moved from Atlético Madrid to Bayern in 2019 for 80 million euros. Due to his injuries, the Munich record purchaser was never able to fully live up to this price. Most recently, Hernández was out for months after he tore his cruciate ligament at the World Cup in Qatar.

His Munich chapter ends prematurely after numerous titles. Hernández became German champion four times, winning the DFB Cup and the Champions League once each. When the Frenchman played, his quality was clearly visible. However, considering the transfer fee, this happened too rarely. A successor for the Frenchman is almost already ready. The South Korean Min-Jae Kim is to receive a five-year contract on the Isar until the summer of 2028. An official club announcement is still pending. The Napoli centre-back reportedly has a release clause in his contract, meaning he will be due at least €50 million.
