Frankfurt dredges the next real talent
After good experiences with Jesus Vallejo and Omar Mascarell, Frankfurt is once again focusing on a real talent. But harmony has competition from Marcos Llorente.
Eintracht Frankfurt has had brilliant experiences with two former Real Madrid players: Jesus Vallejo was an established centre-back player on loan and Omar Mascarell is an important midfielder for coach Niko Kovac.
The Spanish newspaper AS reports that the Hessians are now showing great interest in the next real talent: Marcos Llorente is the object of desire.
The defensive midfielder has only 17 appearances in the current season and cannot avoid Casemiro, Toni Kroos, Isco and Luka Modric.
Other reserve players Mateo Kovacic and Dani Ceballos are also more popular with Real coach Zinedine Zidane than Llorente.
The 23-year-old Spaniard plans to leave Madrid in the summer of 2018. In addition to harmony, Real Sociedad is also interested in Llorente, which is probably to be lent at a favourable price in order to collect playing practice.
A good argument in favour of Frankfurt is its qualification for international business – currently, it even holds a place in the Champions League.
