Atletico Madrid midfielder Llorente confirms uncle claims over Liverpool talk

Atletico Madrid midfielder Marcos Llorente has confirmed the claims of his uncle over transfer talk.

Julio Llorente revealed last week that Liverpool had made an approach earlier this year, but Marcos had no interest in leaving Atletico.

And the midfielder told Mundo Deportivo: “Nothing comes to my mind. I told my uncle, in relation to these issues, that as long as I'm comfortable in the club, he does not comment on anything. And so we are doing.

"I don't know if they are true or a lie, but I don't want to know anything about that. I am very happy, very happy. Sportingly I am going at a ten. Right now I don't want to hear anything."

Llorente continued: “Right now, I have incredible happiness, both sports and personal. I have taken a leap in my football. I'm helping the team with goals and assists. I have changed the way I play.

"We are achieving great results in the LaLiga and the Champions League. I have managed to reach the National Team, which is the best. It is that I am going from ten, very happy, I hope we achieve the club's objectives."
