Marcos Llorente Leaves on Loan to Alavés


Los Blancos are working hard these last weeks to finish the squad for the next season. The board is still working in signing new and good players and even Zidane said that more players could be welcome in the group. However, it’s not easy to find good and affordable players so right now the priority is selling or give on loan some footballers.

The last player to leave the club is Marcos Llorente, who will play next season on loan in Alavés, a club recently promoted to the first division in Spain. It would be a great opportunity for him to show his capabilities in La Liga and come back with more experience to Real Madrid.

Actually, Zidane hesitated about the youngster. He did a great pre season tour, showing he was able to step forward. However, there are a lot of competitors in the midfield, so it’s better for Llorente to leave the club and come back when he is ready. Casemiro, Modric, Kroos, Kovacic, Isco or James Rodriguez make the position very crowded.

Llorente’s idea is following Carvajal, Casemiro or Asensio’s steps. This is leave the club one year on loan, play well in his team and gain the right to come back and have a spot in the first squad.

Last year Marcos Llorente played 37 games in Castilla, the second Real Madrid team scoring three goals. He also played 23 minutes with the first team split in two games against Las Palmas and Levante al Bernabéu stadium.

Before Llorente, Real Madrid sorted out this week Jesé’s future. The forward left the club and was presented as a new PSG player. This is the proof that Real Madrid is working very good at developing young and Spanish players. Who will be the next to follow Llorente or Jesé’s steps?
