Real Madrid has completed the signing of left-back Theo Hernandez from city rivals Atletico Madrid in a six-year deal worth £24m.
The 19-year-old Frenchman failed to play for the Atletico first team and spent last season on loan at Alaves where he impressed making 38 appearances in all competitions, including playing in the Copa del Rey final defeat by Barcelona.
His arrival feels the void left by Fabio Coentrao who joined Sporting Lisbon of Portugal.
Theo’s brother, Lucas Hernandez who also plays for Athletico Madrid is being touted to join his brother at the Bernabeu.
