<p class="">Atleti president Enrique Cerezo said he was not aware of the offer from Bayern.</p>

<p class="">"For now Lucas Hernandez plays for Atletico Madrid and he wants to stay here with us. We are in the process of building a team and we’re not a selling club," Cerezo told website Sportyou.</p>

<p class="">The 22-year-old has missed two recent games through a knee injury as Diego Simeone’s side chase Barcelona who have a three-point lead at the top of La Liga.</p>
