PSG announced the signing of Lucas Hernandez with the club under a contract that runs until the end of the 2027/28 season after reaching an agreement with Bayern Munich for the transfer of the France international.
Lucas Hernandez brings with him a wealth of experience, having made significant contributions to the French national team. Hernandez became a World Champion back in 2018 as part of the French contingent player in the 2018 World Cup in Russia, where he started in every match and provided two assists.
In addition to his international achievements, the 27-year-old has enjoyed a successful club career at club level.
Hernandez began his professional career at Atletico Madrid, where he debuted professionally in 2014, securing titles such as the Europa League and the Super Cup in 2018.
In 2019, Lucas Hernandez made a move to Bayern of the German Bundesliga, quickly establishing himself as a key player for the Bavarian side. His time with the German club yielded an impressive collection of six trophies, including the Champions League, Bundesliga, UEFA Super Cup, FIFA Club World Cup, German Cup, and German Super Cup. He continued to dominate the German league, winning consecutive championships in 2021, 2022, and 2023, while adding another German Super Cup victory in 2022.
Talking to the PSG PR team for the official announcement of his move to Paris, Hernandez said that "I have eagerly awaited this moment for a long time, and now it has finally arrived. Today is a special day for me, and I am incredibly happy to be here."
Although the club didn't share any financial information related to the fee paid to Bayern, late-June reports were quoting the operation at around €50m.
That's a sizable amount of money, but it's still lower than Bayern's initial demands north of €60m at the start of the negotiations with PSG once Hernandez made clear to the Germans that he wouldn't extend his contract past June 2024.
