During the early parts of his career, Theo Hernandez was one of Real Madrid’s biggest bets in the fullback department.

A product of the Atletico Madrid youth academy, Hernandez joined Real Madrid for as much as €24 million in 2017. But after making minimal impact at Santiago Bernabeu, he eventually joined Real Sociedad, before being snapped up by AC Milan.

Hernandez has established himself as a top-tier fullback at San Siro. But after spending five years at the club, the Frenchman is reportedly looking for a change of scenery.

Theo Hernandez wants Real Madrid return

According to SPORT, Theo Hernandez is eyeing a potential return to Real Madrid in the coming summer.

The AC Milan star is closely following Real Madrid’s pursuit of Alphonso Davies and is ready to pounce on any opportunity to rejoin the club.

Hernandez are aware that Real Madrid are desperate for a new left-back this summer, despite Ferland Mendy’s excellent performances this past season.

Hernandez had featured in only 23 matches during his first stint at Real Madrid. But he is a much-improved player now and feels ready to return to the Bernabeu.

Real Madrid only want Davies

Real Madrid were previously offered the opportunity to re-sign Theo Hernandez, but the Spanish giants refused citing their desire for Davies.

Much to Hernandez’s misfortune, Real Madrid’s outlook has not changed a bit. The newly-crowned European champions only have one goal when it comes to signing a new left-back – Davies or nothing.

Not to mention, Hernandez has a market value of €60 million, which does not make him very accessible for Los Blancos.

Keeping that in mind, the Frenchman’s chances of rejoining his old club remain slim as of now, though in football, we cannot rule out anything.

Spain midfielder credits Real Madrid assistant manager for career success

Spain’s European Championship campaign so far has been one filled with revelations. From young Lamine Yamal and Nico Williams on the wings to the ever-so-solid midfield, La Roja have impressed across the park and have taken the tournament by storm.

One such player who has played a critical role for the team despite not being in many pundits’ squad for the tournament is Fabian Ruiz. The PSG midfielder has been sensational for Luis de la Fuente’s men so far, scoring once and providing one assist in two games.

Despite not having any direct links with Real Madrid, the Spanish midfielder interestingly credits Davide Ancelotti for his success and AS brings the story.

A chapter in Naples

Fabian Ruiz may have never played for Los Blancos in his career so far, but he crossed paths with the Ancelottis in Naples a few years ago.

Ruiz signed for the Italian club from Real Betis in 2018 for a fee of €30 million. At the time, he was not known widely and was just seen as another routine Spanish midfielder aspiring to make it big.

As revealed by the player in a recent interview, however, it was Carlo Ancelotti’s son and Real Madrid assistant manager Davide Ancelotti who first saw the spark in him.

“Meeting him was a very important step in my career. From the beginning, he backed me, and it was not easy to pay what Napoli paid for me, a player who had not played much in La Liga with Betis.”

“If it weren’t for him, I wouldn’t be here. I have a very good relationship and friendship with him,” he added.

A special eye

Ruiz’s comments on Davide Ancelotti only make it clearer as to why Carlo Ancelotti holds his son’s advice in high regard. It is, after all, a testament to the tactician’s keen eye for special talent.

As revealed earlier this year, it was the manager’s son who suggested Joselu’s substitution against Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League semifinals when the team was on the brink of elimination.

What happened next was history as the veteran scored twice within minutes to turn the game around and send the Bavarians crashing out.

Davide has been rumoured to be interested in walking his own path soon as a specialist coach, but as it stands, will continue working under his father for at least one more year at Real Madrid.
