Atletico Madrid fear Man Utd summer push for Llorente

Atletico Madrid expect Manchester United to bid for Marcos Llorente this summer.

AS says Atletico have sped up contract talks with midfielder Llorente amid growing interest from United.

It's understood that the Red Devils are preparing a £68m bid for the 26-year-old, with the Spanish club concerned by this development.

Although his current deal does not expire until 2024, Atletico 'intensified' conversations for a renewal in recent weeks after hearing of transfer links.

Atletico's CEO Miguel Angel Gil is personally handling Llorente's renewal negotiations and he has already met the player's agent several times in recent weeks.
