Reports emerged last week claiming Hernandez will cross the Madrid divide, becoming the first player to do since 2000.

It was said a deal could be confirmed as soon this next week which would be worth £26.2million.

Hernandez’s release clause is around £22m, and according to Spanish paper Marca, Real will pay Atletico an extra couple of million as a way of compensation.

Marca claim a deal is very close and he could be presented as a Real player in the first week of July when the transfer window formally opens.

It is said Hernandez is keen to represent Spain at international level after rejecting France, the country of his birth.

Hernandez, 19, spent last season on loan at Alaves.

Only last month, Atletico president Enrique Cerezo claimed he hadn’t received an approach for Hernandez.

He said: “Theo is an Atletico Madrid player and until now, as far as I know, nobody has asked us about him.

“We cannot talk about hypothetical things. There is a code, with all clubs. When we want a player, we talk to the club first, and then with the player.

“We have no intention to sell any player, but if another club comes with an offer which could be interesting to a player, they should talk to us.

“Things happen as they have to happen, I always say that players will play where they want to play.

“If a player is ready to be transferred, then they can look for whatever club they want. Theo is an Atletico Madrid player.”
