I hope to learn a lot from him and improve my game”, He maintains. As he already made clear in his letter to the Real and its fans “for me and my family it has been a difficult decision”, Among other things because“ we traveled to another country ”.

Llorente bets on Leeds and the Premier by giving up playing the Europa League, the European Super Cup and a Copa del Rey final with Real Sociedad. “I think it’s a good step for me, I do the right thing”, He explains to justify his determination. He also affirms that he tab for “a legendary team in the Premier”.

Leeds sign him because he needs troops in the center of defense.

He says, in any case, that he looks ready to play, if that is the coach’s wish. Llorente is once again ‘white’ and has a new ‘peacock’ or ‘peacock’ status, which are the two names of his new team.
