Marcos Llorente has changed his tune

Marcos Llorente has more than one foot in Atletico Madrid where he is seen as the ideal replacement for Rodri. That said, the man from the Real Madrid academy was not always so keen on the city rival.

In 2016, Marcos Llorente visited the 'Marca' office and saw a photograph of his father wearing the Atletico shirt. Paco Llorente played for the 'Colchoneros' until Real Madrid paid his buyout clause, but his son did not seem too impressed. "At f***ing Atletico... 10 years before I was born. I don't like it, I don't like it. I don't imagine myself at Atletico Madrid, I will always be a Real man."

Months afterwards, while he was on loan at Alaves, Marcos Llorente was less critical of Atletico and after receiving his first approach from the club, he said: "Atletico are a great team, They have a spectacular squad, but I am not considering that possibility right now." He tried to win back Real Madrid fans with the following promise: "I would never sign for Barca."

However, this summer the situation has changed again and his move to Atletico Madrid seems basically a done deal. Julio Llorente, the midfielder's uncle and agent, did not hide what was obvious on 'Radio Marca'. "There are still a lot of possible options.  It's true that Atletico Madrid are one of those clubs which Marcos could sign for in the future."
