Juve to bid €6m for Llorente

Another day and another transfer story suggesting that Fernando Llorente could leave Athletic Bilbao for Juventus in January.

Although the player this week suggested that he would remain with his present club until his contract expired in June, that hasn’t silenced the speculation.

Reports in the peninsula are claiming that the Old Lady – who have now qualified for the last 16 of the Champions League – could make a cheeky €6m bid after Christmas.

The Bianconeri, who are also being paired with Shanghai Shenhua’s Didier Drogba, will face competition from English clubs for the Spaniard.
