Despite closing in on a move to Real Sociedad, Theo Hernandez will travel on tour with Real Madrid as he awaits finalisation of the agreement.
Until then, he is just another member of Julen Lopetegui’s squad and will be treated as such, pending a potential return flight to head to San Sebastian.
The deal is said to be 90% complete and the player is already looking for a place to live in the Basque city, aided by his friendship with former teammate Miguel Angel Moya.
Any such loan move is believed to be likely to be for a year, with Real Sociedad able to extend it for another year if they wish to.
If there is a glitch, Theo will take part as usual in friendlies against Manchester United, Juventus and Roma.
