Signed by Atletico Madrid almost two years ago, from no less than major rivals of theirs, Real Madrid, on a 30 million euros transfer fee, Spanish international all-rounder Marcos Llorente (26) managed to stand out, from Colchoneros ranks, as he never succeeded in doing while playing for Merengues. Starting as a defensive midfielder, Llorente got to grow and enhance his skills, up to come up as the dutiful one, and being lined up as a wide-open midfielder, as well as even a second striker.

Now worth more than twice the sum he was purchased by, former Deportivo Alavés playmaker, currently on a deal with Wanda Metropolitano-based giants until June 2024, is allegedly growing into a major target for Bayern Munich, Manchester United, and Paris Saint-Germain. To date, Atletico Madrid are planning to keep him in, unless withdrawing a royal bid upon.
