Chelsea favourites amid 35 offers arriving for Real Madrid midfielder Marcos Llorente

Real Madrid have fielded 35 offers from across Europe for Marcos Llorente.

The midfielder is ready to leave Madrid this coming week, convinced he won't be able to secure a place in coach Zinedine Zidane's starstudded line-up.

Pundit Miguel Ángel Díaz on Cope's El Partidazo revealed: "Marcos Llorente, who is one of the pearls of Real Madrid and who played on loan at Alavés last year, has had around 35 teams that have been interested in him, including Atlético de Madrid and Barcelona.

"All Primera teams, except Athletic (Bilbao), have been interested in him. There have been offers from several countries, he is a very coveted player."

Diario Sport, meanwhile, says Chelsea have shown the most concrete interest in Llorente and if Real are prepared to sell, they would be favourites to sign the Spain U21 international.
