Uncle: Real Madrid midfielder Llorente would join Atletico

Real Madrid midfielder Marcos Llorente would be happy to move to Atletico Madrid.

So says his uncle, Ramon Grosso.

"Marcos has made it clear that he wants to be playing regular, first team football," Grosso said.

"He would love to carry on playing for Real Madrid because he is a fan and he would do anything to be successful here but it seems like his time may have come to an end.

"He would like to know where he will be plying his trade next year before the new pre-season gets underway.

"Money will not be the deciding factor in where he ends up, but rather the interest that the team shows in him and the promises they make him.

"Atletico Madrid are an excellent team and we know there is interest from them.

"Both his father and grandfather used to play for them so as a family we have lots of ties with them.

"Marcos would definitely be happy to go and play there.

"However, there are many other clubs that have shown great interest in capturing his signature and it seem that he does not fit into Zinedine Zidane's plans so he will have to look for another club."
