The Spaniard seems to have quite a few teams on his tail, but the agent only shed light on a couple, saying that a club from Manchester and one for London have reached the final in Llorente’s decision-making.
While it’s easy to figure out which Manchester Club wants him, given the fact that United just brought in two strikers this summer and won’t be looking to add another, it’s difficult to pinpoint which London club are closer to get him, Llorente being liked with Tottenham, Chelsea and Arsenal during this summer. ...........Read more
