The 19-year-old left-back passed the checkup successfully without any problems, reports Efe. 

According to reports, the Marseille-born defender will continue his career wearing the Real Madrid jersey.

He has a €24 million ($26.2 million) clause which Real Madrid are set to pay to Atletico at the end of the season, making him the first signing of the 2017-18 season.
