Real Madrid just confirmed the signing of Theo Hernandez on their official website.

Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid reached an agreement over the transfer of Theo Hernandez, who will stay with the club for the next six seasons. The player will be presented next Monday at 19:30 CET after he completes his medical.

After that, he will step on the pitch wearing Real Madrid's shirt and speak to the press in the media room.

It seems that Real Madrid waited until Sporting Portugal announced their loan deal with Coentrao to confirm the signing of Theo.

Hernandez is a young and promising player who will be an interesting backup for Marcelo in the short term and should be good enough to start for Madrid once the Brazilian defender starts his decline.

According to reports, Real Madrid will be paying €30 million for Theo, although they could have triggered the €24 million release clause.
