According to reports published by L'Equipe on Saturday, Lucas Hernandez has officially signed his contract with PSG and he also completed some medical tests on Friday in Paris ahead of his transfer from Bayern Munich.
The only thing left for the move to become official is PSG publishing a statement and Bayern bidding their farewell to their now-former player.
After spending the last four seasons with Bayern Munich, Lucas Hernandez can already be considered a member of PSG. Although the transfer from Bayern to PSG has not been officially confirmed by the Parisian club, the 27-year-old central defender has already put pen to paper on his contract.
Following the signing of the deal, and as it's the case with many other international players part of PSG's roster, Hernandez will take a few days off on vacation before joining the rest of his new teammates on July 10, when PSG are expected to resume training ahead of next season.
Hernandez underwent a successful medical examination on Friday. That's no joke in this case, mind you, considering Hernandez's recent ACL tear that kept him sidelined for the second half of the season after suffering the injury in the 2022 World Cup back in November.
The French world champion has reportedly signed a three-year contract. It's yet unknown whether or not there are any options attached to the deal that might extend it past that length or make the final year a player/team option.
Although the transfer fee isn't clear either, mostly because of the inclusion of performance-related bonuses, different sources have quoted it in the €40--45m clip during the past few days. That's a coup for PSG, considering Bayern's initial demand of €60m to get the negotiations started.
Knowing that the player would inevitably refuse to extend his deal (expiring in June 2024) with Bayern, though, the German side decided to sell him for a little lower fee now rather than losing him for free at the end of next season.
PSG pounced and grabbed one of the best defenders available in the market to bolster that defense that will also feature Marquinhos and newcomer Milan Skriniar.
