Madrid reject ’20 Llorente bids’

Real Madrid have rejected 20 offers for in-demand young midfielder Marcos Llorente this summer, according to reports in Spain.

The 22-year-old Spanish youth international spent last season on loan at Alaves, helping them to a top-half finish and the final of the Copa Del Rey – playing 38 matches in total.

Marca report Sevilla, Valencia, Atletico Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain are among the clubs to have directly enquired for the central midfielder, with a Madrid source saying the club have turned down numerous offers.

Llorente now looks set to stay at the Bernabeu this season and provide competition to regular deep-lying midfielder Casemiro.
