Defender Theo Hernandez, currently on loan at Alaves from Atletico Madrid, passed a medical with record European football champions Real Madrid, according to Spanish media reports on Monday. The 19-year-old left-back passed the checkup successfully without any problems.

According to reports, the Marseille-born defender will move to Real Madrid this summer. He has a 24 million euros ($26.2 million) clause which Real Madrid are set to pay to Atletico at the end of the season, making him the first signing of the 2017-18 season.

The player and the club hope to announce the move officially after the Copa del Rey final between Alaves and Barcelona on May 27.

Hernandez joining Real is a massive blow for Manchester United and Liverpool, who were both believed to be plotting moves to bring the youngster to England.
