Fernando Llorente claims Real Madrid attempted to sign him on multiple occasions

Fernando Llorente, who is still not retired from football, has claimed Real Madrid attempted to sign him on multiple occasions. The 37-year-old free agent played his most recent football for Eibar last season.

Llorente established himself with Athletic Club, rising through the youth systems of the Basque club to become one of La Liga’s most reliable strikers by the late 2000s.

He eventually left on a free transfer to join Juventus in 2013, and then had unsuccessful stints with Sevilla, Swansea, Tottenham, Napoli, Udinese, and Eibar. Llorente, 37, left second-tier Eibar at the end of the previous season and is currently a free agent.

He won the 2010 World Cup and the 2012 Euro with Spain on the international stage.

“No… no. I was never actually. I had a contract with Athletic, and whenever Real Madrid wanted me, Athletic never wanted to let me leave, and Madrid at the time never wanted to pay my release clause “according to Llorente.

“Juventus were faster when the chance presented itself.”

“I wanted to put on the white shirt. Real Madrid is currently the best team in the world, and their performance in the Champions League is amazing. When they advance, they can always prevail “.

When asked ‘If Carlo Ancelotti contacted Llorente tomorrow to fill in for Karim Benzema, would he leave for free?’ “No doubt. No doubt, “The Pamplona striker answered.

“What will transpire in the future is unknown to me. Even though I’ve been out of touch for three months, I want to keep going “.

“I’m still working out and looking for something exciting. If not, we’ll hunt for another activity that makes me happy,” Fernando Llorente concluded.
