An already proved talent who grew up in the Atletico Madrid defensive school under manager Diego Simeone, he became a World Cup champion with France last year.

Lucas got an offer he couldn’t refuse from Bayern Munich early in 2019, he quickly accepted it and left the Colchoneros out to dry.

The Spanish club received an impressive €80 million for his transfer, which helped them build the squad they are putting together right now.
