Real Madrid confirm Theo  Hernandez’s signing from Atletico


Real Madrid have signed left-back Theo Hernandez from city rivals Atletico Madrid for a reported £22.8m fee on a six-year deal.

The 19-year-old Frenchman failed to play for the Atletico first team and spent last season on loan at Alaves.

He made 38 appearances in all competitions, including playing in the Copa del Rey final defeat by Barcelona.

The club said in a statement: “Theo, who was under contract until 2021, has rejected several times the offers of renewal from Atletico Madrid and the offers of different European clubs to hire his services, as well as stating repeatedly his firm desire to play for Real Madrid.”
Real said in a statement: “Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid have agreed to the transfer of Theo Hernandez, who is to sign for the club for the next six seasons.”
