Atletico Madrid full-back, Lucas Hernandez, revealed he turned down the chance to play for 13-time European champions, Real Madrid, in favour of Los Rojiblancos


Lucas' younger brother, Theo is already on Real Madrid's books and were eager to have both Hernandez brothers at their disposal. 



However, Lucas, being an ardent Atletico Madrid supporter, couldn't bring himself to follow his sibling to Atletico's bitterest rivals. 


"I didn't pay too much attention [to the offer]," Lucas said to RMC Sport, as quoted by ​FourFourTwo.


"I was 100 per cent focused on my club, where I had recently signed a new contract. My agent told me about it. When he said there was an opportunity to go to Real Madrid, I told him I couldn't do that."


"Atletico are my club, a team who have given me everything. I'm an honest person and I couldn't go to Madrid."


However, despite being happy at Atletico at the moment, the 22-year-old refused to rule out a move in the future.



"I hope I can stay here for a very long time, but football moves very fast. If an offer comes in that I can't refuse," he said. 


Lucas started all seven for France in their triumphant World Cup campaign in Russia and is in Didier Deschamps' squad for the games against Iceland and Germany this month.
