Goal understands that the 19-year-old defender, who is currently on loan at Alaves, underwent examinations on Monday ahead of a move to Zinedine Zidane's side. 

Hernandez had also attracted interest from Barcelona but is set to play at the Santiago Bernabeu next season after Madrid won the battle for the talented youngster. 

The Sanitas La Moraleja Hospital was the site for Hernandez's medical, as he completed the formalities required prior to making the switch official. 

Theo, brother of Atletico starter Lucas Hernandez, has won rave reviews this season at the Basques, and previously stated his desire to stay in La Liga as rumours over a transfer grew.
