The move had been mooted in the Spanish press.

Atletico Madrid have moved to quash reports that defender Lucas Hernandez is set to move to Bayern Munich in January.

Spanish newspaper Marca reported on Wednesday that Bayern had agreed to pay the France international's 80million euro release clause to push through a deal in the New Year.

But in an unusual statement, Atletico insisted no such deal was in the offing and Lucas was committed to the LaLiga club.

"Following the story published by the Marca newspaper on an alleged deal between Bayern Munich and our player Lucas Hernandez, according to which the German club is to trigger the Frenchman's buyout clause in the January window, Atletico de Madrid wishes to state that, in conversation with our club, Lucas Hernandez has denied any deal with Bayern Munich and also any intention to exit our club," the statement said.

"Additionally the excellent relationship between Atletico de Madrid and the German club has led Bayern Munich to deny said operation during an conversation between officials of both clubs."

Lucas, 22, came through the ranks at Atletico was part of France's World Cup winning squad in the summer.
