Atletico Madrid fullback Theo has made choice between Real Madrid and Barcelona

Atletico Madrid fullback Theo Hernandez has made a decision where he wants to play next season.

The defender, on-loan with Alaves this season, has a €24 million buyout clause in his contract and is a confirmed target for Real Madrid and Barcelona.

El Mundo Deportivo says should Real and Barca both match his clause, Theo will choose the Catalans.

The youngster has been a long-term target for Barca chief Robert Fernandez, who made enquiries after Theo some 18 months ago.

His agent, Manuel Quilon, admits the fullback has no interest in moving abroad at this stage in his career: "It is true that many teams follow him, but we have not decided yet. Marseille? No, he wants to stay in Spain."
