Bayern Munich are set for a difficult summer ahead. They are expected to lose Niklas Sule to rivals Borussia Dortmund and have a massive rebuilding project ahead of them as old guards such as Manuel Neuer, Thomas Muller and Robert Lewandowski enter the final phase of their respective careers.

In addition to finding long-term replacements for marquee players, Bayern may also have to keep hold of their current stars. And according to Fichajes, Sule might not be the only player leaving Allianz Arena at the end of the season.

The report suggests Bayern Munich are facing a battle to keep hold of Lucas Hernandez. The Frenchman has become a target for three European giants, in the form of Real Madrid, Manchester United and FC Barcelona.

The Catalans were said to be keen on signing Hernandez last summer, as Ronald Koeman was looking for a reliable alternative to ageing defensive stars in Gerard Pique and Jordi Alba.

A move did not materialise for obvious reasons, as Bayern did not want to offload a player they had bought for €80 million two and a half years ago.

But after an indifferent season, coupled with the apparent need for reinforcements, it won’t be surprising to see the German Rekordmeister consider the possibility of offloading Hernandez, who can fetch a sizable value in the market.

The player himself doesn’t seem to rule out the idea of a potential return to Spain. While his former club Atletico Madrid might not be an option, the Frenchman could prove to be a major asset for a club like Barcelona.

Capable of playing at left-back, centre-back, and the left side of a back three, Hernandez is among the most versatile defenders in the Bundesliga. However, the report does indicate the player is happy at Bayern and does not intend to move anytime soon.

His perceived value in the market might also make him an unrealistic option for Barca, who may have to break the bank to sign top target Erling Haaland this summer.
