Real Madrid coach Zidane hints Man Utd, Arsenal target Llorente to be sold

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane has hinted he's ready to sell Marcos Llorente.

The midfielder has been linked with Manchester United and Arsenal in recent days.

Zidane explained, "A month ago, I said that I've always loved Marcos as a player. He needs to play and he deserves to. You know about the players we've got here and you've got to be really honest with them.

"I remember that he did really well during his season out at Alavés because he was getting regular game time. He hasn't got that here because there are a lot of important players. You can't say that I haven't given him the chance to play. He's played less than others but we can't change that. Within a squad there are always some players than get less game time."
