Real Madrid want Llorente?

FIFA agents added to Spanish speculation Juventus striker Fernando Llorente could join Real Madrid on loan in January.

The forward arrived over the summer as a free agent after his contract with Athletic Bilbao expired, but the 28-year-old has barely set foot on the pitch so far.

Both Italian and Spanish media have suggested Llorente could be available on loan in January to regain his fitness and form.

“Fernando Llorente could get transferred to Real Madrid and play in the Champions League, as he is not getting minutes with Juve,” commented FIFA accredited agent Francois Gallardo to Punto Pelota.

“Fernando is very good, he knows the Spanish League and if he arrives on loan then the club won’t be splashing out in January.”
