Theo back in Madrid ahead of move

Theo Hernandez has returned to Madrid ahead of completing his move to Real Madrid from Atletico later this week.

The teenage full back was on holidays in the United States but has returned to the Spanish capital to finalise his move before a quick stop in the Canary Islands.

The French youth international, who wants to switch allegiance to Spain, is expected to be announced as a Madrid player on either Friday or Saturday, according to Marca, in a deal worth up to €24m.

Theo starred on loan at Alaves last season, making 38 appearances across all competitions as the side reached the Copa Del Rey final and achieved a top half La Liga finish.
