Marcos Llorente did not give away much when asked about the rumors linking Cristiano Ronaldo to Atletico Madrid this summer.
The five-time Ballon d’Or has informed Manchester United about his decision to leave the club this summer to compete for major honors and play in the Champions League.
Llorente has stated that transfer rumors are not discussed amongst teammates in the dressing room due to their uncertainty. The same is the case with the rumors regarding Ronaldo.
Speaking to El Larguero (via AS), the Atletico Madrid midfielder was quoted as saying the following:
“No way. They talk about so many names that don’t end up coming that it’s no use talking. If he comes, there will be time to talk. I, at least, try to pass the subject because there is too much talk.”
It is worth mentioning that Marcos Llorente and Cristiano Ronaldo were teammates at Real Madrid. When told that Ronaldo would be a great fit for Atletico Madrid, Llorente responded:
“You all know him and you know everything he has achieved (laughs). It is more the coaching staff and the club that should decide.”
Diego Simeone’s side seems like one of the only clubs Ronaldo could join this summer if he wants to compete in the Champions League. According to recent reports, Ronaldo’s partner Georgina Rodriguez also wants the forward to move back to Madrid
