Atletico Madrid president Enrique Cerezo has confirmed the club has not received any offers for highly-rated full-back Theo Hernandez.
The 19-year-old – who has impressed on a season-long loan spell at Alaves – has been heavily linked to both Real Madrid and Barcelona with various media outlets saying both are willing to trigger his €24m release clause at the Vicente Calderon.
"Theo is an Atletico Madrid player and until now, as far as I know, nobody has asked us about him," Cerezo told El Larguero.
"We cannot talk about hypothetical things. There is a code, with all clubs. When we want a player, we talk to the club first, and then with the player.
“We have no intention to sell any player, but if another club comes with an offer which could be interesting to a player, they should talk to us.
"Things happen as they have to happen, I always say that players will play where they want to play. If a player is ready to be transferred, then they can look for whatever club they want. Theo is an Atletico Madrid player. If he is not tomorrow then we will find out why. But leave him and Real Madrid alone."
