Barcelona are interested in Real Madrid and Liverpool target Theo Hernandez, reports Mundo Deportivo.
Reports from Spain earlier this week claimed that Theo could leave Atletico Madrid for city rivals Real this summer as the European champions have decided to activate his €24m (£20.5m) buyout clause.
However, Real could also face competition from Barcelona, with Mundo Deportivo reporting the Catalans are keen on the 19-year-old too.
Hernandez, for his part, is actually French, but grew up in Atletico’s academy and is currently on loan to Deportivo Alaves.
Atletico Madrid have denied that they’ve refused to attend a pre-Derby meal with Florentino Perez because they are angered by his club’s attempts at signing one of their youngsters.
