Enzo Fernández’s move from Real Madrid to fellow La Liga side Deportivo Alavés has been given the green light by manager and father Zinedine Zidane.
The 22-year-old midfielder has signed a three-year deal at Alavés, who finished ninth in Spain’s top division last season.
Zidane made just one appearance for Real Madrid last term as he failed to establish himself at Santiago Bernabeu.
Real have inserted a buy-back clause in the deal should they wish to bring the player back to Madrid.
He played just once for his dad’s team, which was in the Copa del Rey win over Cultural Leonesa.
Instead he spent most of his time playing for the club’s youth team in the UEFA Youth League.
He also played 78 games for Real Madrid Castilla, the club’s reserve team, scoring seven goals and assisting 15 times.
A statement on Alavés’ official website read: ‘Deportivo Alavés wants to welcome Enzo Zidane and wishes him the best of luck for the new season.’
Enzo is the oldest of the Real Madrid manager’s four children.
