There was an awkward moment when Fernando Llorente came back to Athletic Bilbao and their supporters are chanting: “Go to Juve!”
Llorente doesn’t possess the creative imagination of Berbatov, but the Spaniard is a bulldozer and could have been the difference against Chelsea.
You look at how he man-handled Manchester United and the thought of him helping Juve over the line against the Blues isn’t a far-fetched idea.
Aritz Aduriz shouldn’t even be mentioned in the same sentence as Llorente. Yet, he is the one carrying Llorente’s load at Bilbao with several early goals.
Llorente will be frozen out of this Bilbao side and his last few months as a Los Leone will be psychologically painful.
In recent times, Spanish forwards have been below-par in Serie A: Bojan Krkić, José Mari, Javier Portillo, Diego Tristán and Javi Moreno.
Will Llorente be the same if he signs with Juve? Comment below with your opinion.
