ATLETICO MADRID - to raise Hernandez’s release clause to ward off Unied interest

Published on: 07 September 2018

Atletico Madrid want to increase France defender Lucas Hernandez's release clause to €150m to fend off any interest from Manchester United.

The defender currently has an €80m (£72m) release clause in his contract after committing his future to the club until 2024 and that is within the Old Trafford club’s budget. But, according to AS, they need to act fast as Atletico are working on increasing that amount.
