Atletico Madrid defender Lucas reveals Real Madrid offer

Atletico Madrid defender Lucas Hernandez admits he could've signed for Real Madrid.

The current world champion made the revelation during an interview with RMC.

"I didn't listen to it much. I was 100 percent committed to my club and also had just renewed my contract," he said.

"My agent told me and as soon as he said Madrid were interested I said I couldn't do it.

"Atletico are my city, my club, they have given me everything.

"I am an honest person and I couldn't go to Madrid."
