Why Atleti signing Marcos Llorente is good news for Manchester City

20 Jun 2019, 23:30

Manchester City's pursuit of Atletico Madrid's Rodrigo Hernandez has received a shot in the arm after the Spanish side signed Marcos Llorente from rivals Real Madrid. 

City have been engrossed in talks with the former Spanish Champions, with a breakthrough thought to be on the horizon. 

Rodrigo is also wanted by German champions Bayern Munich but is said to be interested in joining the English Champions ahead of Bayern. 

The youngster, who cost the club €20 million from Villarreal last summer has a €70 million, which will represent a considerable profit for the club. 

Llorente, meanwhile, could prove an astute replacement for Rodrigo and will have a chance to shine having been on the bench for the better part of his stay at Madrid, where he joined at 14 years of age.

It's understood that Pep Guardiola wants only two players this summer, and will aim at retaining the team that won the treble; the FA Cup, Carabao Cup, and the Premier League, as well as reached the Champions League quarterfinals. 

The Spaniard is keen on replacing Vincent Kompany, who was let go at the end of last season, with a holding midfielder also thought to be on Guardiola's thoughts.
