Bayern Munich win daily blinds to cover Lucas Hernandez injury

Bay­ern Munich have signed vet­er­an Dutch defend­er Daley Blind to replace the injured Lucas Her­nan­dez on Tuesday.

Blind left Ajax Ams­ter­dam by mutu­al con­sent last week and was a free agent with six months left on his con­tract. After a med­ical in Munich, he will arrive at Bun­desli­ga cham­pi­ons Bay­ern on a short-term con­tract until the end of the season.

“We are delight­ed to have Daly join our team,” said Bay­ern sport­ing direc­tor Hasan Sal­i­hamidžić. “Dai­ly” is a ver­sa­tile defend­er. He has exten­sive inter­na­tion­al expe­ri­ence and lead­er­ship qual­i­ties. I’m sure he will help us. ”

The 32-year-old Blind, who can play either in the mid­dle of defense or at left-back, was side­lined for sev­er­al months after torn lig­a­ments in his knee dur­ing France’s 4–1 win over Aus­tralia at the World Cup. It will cov­er the prospec­tive Hernán­dez player.

Blind played for Man­ches­ter Unit­ed between 2014 and 2018, win­ning the FA Cup and Europa League, as well as sev­en Dutch titles dur­ing his two spells with Ajax. For the Dutch nation­al team, he has made 99 appear­ances, includ­ing all five games at the Qatar World Cup.

Bay­ern have announced that Blind will trav­el with the team on Fri­day for their win­ter train­ing camp in Doha, Qatar.

“I’m look­ing for­ward to play­ing here,” Blind told Bay­ern’s web­site. “A club like Bay­ern can win every tro­phy. This club’s hunger for titles was the key to my decision.
