However, Atletico Madrid are also understood to be interested if they lose Rodrigo to Manchester City, as well as Sevilla.

Llorente, who has a contract until 2021 with Real, has made just six appearances in La Liga all season and coach Zinedine Zidane has publicly admitted the 24-year-old “needs more first-team minutes”.
