Manchester United has already started to make plans for upcoming summer window and several players are already rumored to be targeted by premier league giant to feature in Old Trafford next season. Although previous rumors had suggested that Lucas Hernandez will be joining the club during the summer transfer window, the player has recently penned a five-year contract with his current club which runs until the end of 2022.
The 21 year old is one of the Atletico’s finest homegrown products as he rose to become a first team player after progressing through the club’s academy. So far, the player has made 20 appearances this season while featuring five times for France Under-21 team.
Atletico’s sporting director was happy that the player has committed his future with the club as he said, “It is great news for all Atletico fans, he is a player with enormous potential with a spectacular future to come.”
Such contract extensions should be taken with grain of salt though as in recent memory, this contract extensions are proven to be just another way to increase the value of a player to potential buyers. However, we’ll have to wait and see how the future turns out and if we see the player featuring in Manchester United in the upcoming season.
