Theo Herńadez has joined AC Milan for €20M and now he is no longer Real Madrid player after only two seasons. Los Blancos continues to cash money for footballers, although the business with the French player wasn’t good. After one year on loan at Real Sociedad, Theo Hernández leaves completely the club, so he won’t come back to Bernabéu stadium.
Real Madrid can be happy to get rid of Theo Hernández although his signing was a complete mistake. Los Blancos bid on him and they spent €30M only two seasons ago, when he highlighted at Alavés, where he was on loan from Atlético Madrid. It was a dispute between the two big clubs in the capital, and Los Blancos finally decided to buy a player from their neighbour. However, it turned out to be a mistake. Theo Hernández has never been at the level of the white t-shirt.
In his only season at the club, he played only 13 games in La Liga, 6 in Copa del Rey and 3 in the Champions League, with bad performances overall. He was supposed to give some rest to Marcelo, but Theo was never able to keep the level, so the Brazilian started in all the important games. Actually Zidane had to use Nacho Hernández also on the left, because of the poor performances of Theo. His attitude also never helped.
Finally, last year he went on loan to Real Sociedad, where his performances didn’t improve. He played 24 games and enjoyed 1977 minutes with the Basque country team, scoring one goal. Incredibly, a team with a big name like AC Milan set his eyes on Theo Hernández, so he can still try to show his quality in a historic and top team, and in a very competitive league like Serie A. Theo Hernández is only 21 years old, so he has room to improve.
With his departure, Real Madrid have only two left back in the squad: Marcelo and Mendy. Last week, also Reguilón left the club, this time on loan, to join Sevilla and continue his development as a player in a top team in La Liga. This should be a very productive deal for Los Blancos, who should have a top player next season if he is able to keep the same quality as last year and enjoy minutes at Sevilla.
