OFFICIAL: Marcos Llorente moves across Madrid to join Atletico
Real Madrid and Atlético Madrid have agreed a deal which will see Marcos Llorente join up with Diego Simeone next season. The two clubs have discharged proclamations affirming the arrangement.
The only thing lacking to make it official is the player successfully passing a medical. Once that’s done, Llorente will sign a five-year contract with Atletico.
It appears Llorente will be tasked with replacing Rodri, who sets to join Pep Guardiola at Manchester City.
Real Madrid said they thanked Llorente for his « all his years of professionalism and perfect behaviour » since he joined their academy in 2008. They likewise wished him karma on the following phase of his profession.
