Alaves midfielder Marcos Llorente, currently on loan from Real Madrid, believes current teammate Theo Hernandez ‘will triumph’ at the Bernabeu.
Reports earlier this month suggested the Atletico Madrid full-back, who is also currently on a season-long loan deal at the Mendizorrotza, had passed a medical at Los Blancos, although this has yet to be confirmed by any club.
“I am very confident he [Theo] will be very happy and that he will triumph at Real Madrid," the youngster told Minuto 0.
“I have not said anything about my future yet but it's clear that my dream is to play for Real Madrid.
“Right now I'm just thinking about the Copa del Rey final. It may be that from now on my games against Barcelona are more special."
Llorente is due to return to the Bernabeu this summer to form part of their first-team squad, while Theo may yet be the first direct, major transfer between the two Madrid giants since Santiago Solari in 2000.
