Due to the strong performances of Matthijs de Ligt and Dayot Upamecano, FC Bayern is currently doing quite well without Lucas Hernández. Nevertheless, it would be reassuring for everyone involved if the French defender could be back in the game soon - and also extend his contract, which expires in 2024.
Lucas Hernández has been missing from FC Bayern for a few weeks due to a torn muscle bundle in the adductor area. Both parties will have to be a little patient. In any case, a comeback in October is unlikely to happen. In the run-up to the Augsburg game, coach Julian Nagelsmann warned that the defender had to "be patient" and explained how to proceed as follows: "We have to do another MRI, then there is the control image. That wasn't so good last time. He's definitely free of symptoms. Of course, I would like him to be fit and able to play again before the World Cup."
According to kicker information, the plan provides that Hernández can start ball training next week. If everything goes according to plan, the player could return for the games against Werder Bremen (November 8) and Schalke (November 12). The Munich team should also be in contact with France coach Didier Deschamps, who of course plans to use the defender's services at the World Cup.
The Munich team is also in contact with Lucas Hernández's advisor. The 26-year-old's contract eventually expires in 2024 but is set to be extended. Accordingly, Bayern, who are very happy with the player, have already ramped up their efforts. According to kicker information, it is to be expected that the actor will extend his contract with the German record champions. There isn't much that speaks against it.
