Real Madrid want to have another left back in the squad and they have chosen Theo Hernández as the best substitute of Marcelo. The future of the French defender seems to be far from Atlético Madrid unless there is a radical change in the situation. The young defender of only 19 years will sign for Real Madrid when the season ends for an amount of €35M (his release clause).
Theo Hernández, who has become one of the great sensations of the current season with Alavés shirt, will sign a contract of five seasons with the team managed by Zinedine Zidane. He has already had a verbal agreement with Real Madrid a few weeks ago, showing his desire to sign with Los Blancos next year. Barcelona tried to equalize the offer of Florentino Pérez but the French player prefers to play in the capital of Spain because Real madrid are showing a lot of interest in his signing and he thinks he will have more opportunities to triumph at Santiago Bernabéu. We must also add that Florentino’s offer is economically superior than the one from Barcelona.
Meanwhile, Atlético Madrid don’t want Theo’s departure but if Real Madrid pay the release clause, the French defender will have the final decision. He has a contract with Atlético Madrid until 2021, but it looks like Theo wants to change of team because he is not happy with the manner he received from the team managed by Simeone a few years ago.
Not only Real Madrid and Barcelona want to sign one of the rising stars, there also are many important European teams that want his services next years. Manchester City, Olympique Marsella and Liverpool are interested in him but it seems Theo wants to continue in La Liga where he is playing very good being one of the best left backs in the 2016-2017 season.
