Following speculation linking Newcastle United with Lucas Hernandez, a number of Bayern Munich fans have been commenting about the report on Twitter.
German outlet Bild reported that the Magpies had made contact regarding the player’s availability after a difficult first season at the Allianz Arena.
Hernandez joined Bayern from Atletico Madrid last summer after the Bundesliga giants paid his €80million (£72million) release clause.
However, injury and fitness concerns have seen the 2018 World Cup winner lose his left-back berth to Alphonso Davies.
Hernandez has barely featured at centre-back either, and so far this season he has made just 15 appearances in all competitions.
With Newcastle on the verge of a lucrative takeover, plenty of high-profile names are being linked with the Tyneside outfit.
However, a report claiming a 24-year-old, world-class defender who joined one of Europe’s top sides just one year ago and is contracted until the summer of 2024 could already be on the move has been met with some skepticism to say the least.
Here is how some Bayern fans on social media reacted to the speculation:
I just wanna say LOL

100 Mio at least

€80M and I’m fine with that. We could buy Upamecano and our defense would still be great.
