Topic: Real Madrid plan to sign Mario Hermoso this January
He is one of the most fashionable footballers in the league, maxbet and Luis Enrique has included Espanyol's Mario Hermoso in the next Spain squad list, so it's no wonder that Real Madrid are interested in his services and intend to exercise their option on him in January. Los Blancos can purchase the player for 7.5 million euros, and because they are still awaiting a fully fit Jesus Vallejo, and can see just what competition Hermoso would bring, it appears to be a deal that will be executed.Nothing is decided as yet, mind.
