Atletico Madrid rival Liverpool for Real Madrid midfielder Marcos Llorente

Atletico Madrid are ready to pounce for Real Madrid midfielder Marcos Llorente.

Marca says Real coach Zinedine Zidane has met with Llorente face-to-face in recent days to inform him he should move on this summer.

Llorente has attracted interest from Liverpool, however Atletico are also keen.

Atletico coach Diego Simeone is a fan and believes Llorente would be an ideal replacement for Rodrigo should they lose the Manchester City target this summer.

Real are unlikely to demand big money for Llorente given Zidane's opinion.
