Clearly not impressed by Wolfsburg owning the Bundesliga record, Bayern Munich took it back in stunning fashion this summer.

They £72 million capture of Lucas Hernandez this summer not only set a new record but nearly doubled it in the process.

It remains to be seen if Hernandez can live up to the price tag. He’s undoubtedly a talented player, but the pressure will be on him at the Allianz.

That tremendous price tag will be a heavy burden on his shoulders, and he’ll have to hit the ground running to justify that price tag.
