Madrid, Dec 20 (Agencies) | Publish Date: 12/20/2018 11:39:36 AM IST

Atletico Madrid have denied Lucas Hernandez will leave for Bayern Munich in the January transfer window.

Spanish newspaper Marca reported on Wednesday that Bayern were ready to pay the €80m (£72m) release clause for the France international defender.
But in a rare step, Atletico have dismissed the left-back will move to the Bundesliga giants, who are also said to have denied plans of a move for the player, insisting Hernandez has no “intention” to leave them.
“Following the story published by the Marca newspaper on an alleged deal between Bayern Munich and our player Lucas Hernandez, according to which the German club is to trigger the Frenchman’s buyout clause in the January window, Atlético de Madrid wishes to state that, in conversation with our club, Lucas Hernandez has denied any deal with Bayern Munich and also any intention to exit our club,” the club statement read.
“Additionally, the excellent relationship between Atlético de Madrid and the German club has led Bayern Munich to deny said operation during a conversation between officials of both clubs.”
