Real Madrid await offers for Theo Hernandez

A decision has been made by Real Madrid regarding the future of Theo Hernandez and it is likely that the full-back will leave the European champions this summer, though Los Blancos are unwilling to completely cut their ties and will either loan him out or sell him with a buy-back clause in place.

It was reported by MARCA on Tuesday that the club are willing to let the left-back depart, but now they must wait to receive an offer that is acceptable to them and to the player himself.

It is not impossible that he could be sold to a club outside of Spain, which is something that the club have done with their players successfully in the past – notably with Dani Carvajal and Jesus Vallejo, using the Bundesliga as a nurturing ground.

Whatever is to happen, the next few days could be key and it has not been ruled out that he will stay put and fight for his place at the club that spent 28 million euros to secure his services and sparked controversy into what had been a peaceful relationship with Atletico Madrid.

One major problem facing his possible exit is finding a club able to pay his wages, as he currently earns around 5m euros per season, ruling out a number of destinations.

It could be the case that, wherever he goes, Real Madrid could be left to pay part of his wages just to ensure that he can get minutes and develop into the player that they believe he will become.
