Real Madrid close on Atletico teenager Theo Hernandez

After reports had suggested that Barcelona had won the race to sign him last month, Real Madrid have reportedly beaten their rivals to the signing of highly rated left-back Theo Hernandez.

Hernandez has a £20.2m release clause in his contract that Real are willing to meet.

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

But Atletico are desperate for that not to happen as they don't their hottest prospect to sign for their arch rivals.

Both Barca and Madrid are interested in signing the youngster, who represents France at youth level, with the Catalans keen to bring in back-up for Jordi Alba and Los Blancos looking for a player who can rotate with Marcelo.

Alberto Moreno has struggled to hit it off in England whiles James Milner is the wrong side of 30. And in what has been a remarkable season for the minnows, the 19-year-old has been one of the many success stories.

He is on the books of Atletico but has never played for their first team.

Garcia Quilon said Theo, who is on a season-long loan at Deportivo Alaves, will make a decision on his future after the La Liga season ends.

The defender, who scored the only goal of the game as Alaves defeated Athletic Club Bilbao 1-0 on Sunday, has a 25 million Euro buyout clause with Atletico, where his brother, Lucas is a member of the Atletico first team squad.
