“SAD”: Leeds United star player set for medical with Real Betis within hours…

A agreement for the Spaniard to rejoin La Liga is reportedly “very close,” according to a report published by the Spanish source on July 7.

The Yorkshire Evening Post (5 July) has contradicted this report, claiming that the Whites had turned down any offer for Llorente.

Leeds United could lose Diego Llorente to Real Betis.

It’s uncertain if the Spaniard will be moving this summer given the conflicting stories surrounding him.

Following Leeds’ relegation, Llorente spent the previous season on loan at Roma, so it doesn’t seem likely that he wants to play Championship football.


The 30-year-old may try to press through a move because it seems like European football is what the defender is after.

During his three Premier League seasons at Elland Road, the former Real Madrid player provided the Whites with a reliable alternative in the backline.

If he stayed at Leeds in the second tier, he would undoubtedly be among the finest defenders in the division.

It makes sense for all sides for Llorente to leave the Whites if he doesn’t see his future there, even if a transfer fee is required.

This could facilitate Daniel Farke’s recruitment of more defensive reinforcements, following the permanent arrival of Joe Rodon this summer.
