Marcos Llorente 'very happy' with new Real Madrid contract

Marcos Llorente is delighted with his new deal at Real Madrid.

The midfielder has won a new contract to 2021.

"I am very happy to be able to extend my contract here, it is the club of my life and it has been a dream since I was a child," Llorente said to reporters afterwards.

"I am full of patience, I know how young I am and the level that is so high in this club, but I have a desire to learn and grow."

Llorente received a standing ovation upon his return to Alaves, where he had spent last season on loan, and it clearly affected him.

"The ovation was incredible," he continued.

"But now that stage [of his career] is over.

"Now I'm with great players, they give me experience and it is where I can improve, it is where I will grow as a footballer."
