Man Utd ready to trigger £70m release clause for Atletico Madrid's Lucas Hernandez

Manchester United are prepared to meet the release clause of Atletico Madrid defender Lucas Hernandez in the January transfer window.

The Frenchman, who can play at left-back and centre-half, has a £70m release clause in his current contract, which is set to expire

Marca have claimed United are willing to meet the excessive fee for the 2018 World Cup winner.

Real Madrid and Manchester City are also believed to have shown an interest in Hernandez.

The 22-year-old revealed recently that he rejected advances from Real this summer, but it is believed he would be willing to listen to other offers.

And United boss Jose Mourinho remains increasingly confident of prising Lucas away from the Spanish capital. It is believed the Red Devils are willing to double the Marseille native's wages.
