Even before his injury, there were said to have been meaningful talks, after the World Cup the clarification of a few final details was planned.
With Hernández returning unexpectedly earlier from Qatar, there could be a signature in the near future. His current working paper is dated until June 2024.
The central defender has made eleven appearances for FC Bayern this season, scoring one goal and providing one assist. Hernández was injured between mid-September and the end of October due to a torn muscle.
