Atletico Madrid centre-back, Lucas Hernandez, has extended his contract to 2022 on Monday, hoping to ward off interest from a host of Europe’s top clubs.
The French Under-21 international who has made 20 appearances this season said he was excited to renew his contract with the club he has spent his career with.
“It is great news for all Atletico fans, he is a player with enormous potential with a spectacular future to come,” said Atletico’s sporting director, Jose Luis Caminero.
Hernandez looks set to start Tuesday’s Champions League semifinal, first leg at Real Madrid with Atletico missing Jose Maria Gimenez, Sime Vrsaljko and Juanfran through injury.
