Lucas is now being ordered to enter prison not because of the initial altercation with his current wife, but because he disobeyed an order given by a judge (the restraining order).
The events date back to when Hernández and his wife, Amelia Lorente, had an altercation in the middle of the street. The court had sentenced both to 31 days of community service and prevented them from approaching or communicating with each other by any means for 6 months.
Both ignored this, and decided to go on a honeymoon. Lucas was arrested and placed at the disposal of the 3rd Court of Violence Against Women in Madrid, which later released him. Amelia was identified but not detained as the court had not yet notified her of her restraining order.
The Criminal Court number 32 of Madrid has ordered the imprisonment of Lucas Hernández.
Lucas’ defense has filed an appeal against that sentence and it will be up to the provincial Court to consider or reject it. In any case, Lucas must be personally present in Madrid on October 19.
Bayern’s Transfer News
If Robert Lewandowski doesn’t renew with Bayern Munich, the striker’s likely destinations will be ManCity or PSG. Lewandowski wants to decide his future before the end of the season.
• The club is hesitating over what type of contract they would offer Lewandowski. Players in their mid 30s are usually not given more than one year. The striker meanwhile wants a contract until 2025 – Haaland & Adeyemi are on the club’s list as potential successors.
At the moment, Süle is leaving his future completely open. A final decision has not been made yet. In the event of a contract extension, he wants to earn more than €10m/year.
• Newcastle are indeed interested in Niklas Süle. Although Süle is a fan of the Premier League and could well imagine a future in England, a move to Newcastle is unlikely as it would be a significant step back. Contract talks with Bayern are currently on hold.
BILD asked Bayern whether Haaland’s name was discussed in the board – the club didn’t want to answer.
• Haaland would cost around €75m in transfer fee (release clause), at least €30m/year in wages, €30-40m agent fee for Mino Raiola and an additional commission for the father Alf-Inge Haaland.
President Herbert Hainer on whether Bayern are able to finance a move for Haaland: “This question does not arise for us. We have in Robert Lewandowski the reigning world’s best footballer who scores goals every season like no other”
Other Bayern Munich News
Except Benjamin Pavard (suspended) and Sven Ulreich (injured) all players are expected to be available against Leverkusen. That means not everyone will have a place in the matchday squad. Cuisance and Roca are once again the first candidates to be left out of the squad.
Update on Hernández: He is expected to play against Bayer Leverkusen, but probably not against Benfica due to his appointment in Madrid on Tuesday. No team training for all players today.
Nagelsmann: “It’s always important to integrate young talents at an early stage so they get used to the process, the staff and the environment. That’s what Hansi Flick is doing. It’s definitely the right way to develop and introduce the next generation”
Diego Simeone (Atlético coach): “Did you see how Bayern Munich play? They play with Pavard, who is a full-back, as a right CB, and Lucas as a left CB and a libero. They play with two high full-backs, as Bielsa played at some point, a 3-3-3-1, and three more forwards”
• Simeone: “They all arrive, they all score goals. They never lose the ball. And they have Kimmich, the only time he lost a ball was when he gave it to his son to play at home”
Nagelsmann on the Ballon d’Or: “He (Lewandowski) deserves the Ballon d’Or – and in my opinion he has to win the award because he has played more consistently than any other player over the past three years.”
