Real Madrid confirmed that they’ve sent Theo Hernandez to Real Sociedad on a loan deal which will expire in June 2019.

Theo Hernandez needs as many minutes he can get in order to keep developing as a player. His role in the Spanish capital was going to be very minor behind Marcelo in the rotation, so this deal makes sense for all three parts involved.

Theo has the quality to start for Real Sociedad but he will need to work hard and keep his composure. He struggled defensively for Madrid last season but his first year with Alaves was very different, so it’s now time to see who Theo really is as a player. Sergio Reguilon will be Marcelo’s backup this season.
