Liverpool To Compete With Real Madrid And Barcelona For French U-20 Defender
Spanish publication Sport have reported that Barcelona are leading the race to sign Theo Hernandez from Atletico Madrid in the summer. Real Madrid and Liverpool are also interested in landing the French under-20 defender.
Hernandez progressed through the ranks at Atletico Madrid before being sent on loan to newly promoted Alaves at the start of this season. And in what has been a remarkable season for the minnows, the 19-year-old has been one of the many success stories.
Now a mainstay at the back for Alaves, Hernandez has made quite the impression with his solid displays at the back as well as his contributions in the final third, with a goal and four assists to show for his efforts.
