Llorente convinced of Juve power

Juventus-bound Fernando Llorente is convinced that he is joining one of Europe’s top clubs.

“They are one of the best on the continent,” the Athletic Bilbao man noted. “They’ve shown over the last two seasons that they are the best in Italy.

“I’m very happy,” he continued. “Although I’m focused on Athletic right now, there is something very important waiting for me in the future.”

The striker, 28, will move to Turin in the summer on a Bosman free transfer once his current contract expires.

Juventus wrapped up their second consecutive Scudetto on Sunday afternoon. They reached the last eight of the Champions League before falling against Bayern Munich.
