Arsenal, Chelsea boost as Real Madrid make local Llorente decision

Real Madrid will not consider selling Marcos Llorente to Atletico Madrid.

Llorente is pushing to leave Real in the coming days and Atletico have expressed interest. But AS says Real will not consider selling the midfielder to their city rivals.

Real's stance is a boost for Premier League clubs, where Arsenal and Chelsea have been in contact about a price for Llorente.

Real will not consider doing business with Atletico after having to meet the buyout clause of Theo Hernandez to sign the fullback at the end of last season.

For his part, Llorente is keen to leave Real, convinced he won't find a place in their star-studded midfield this season.
