Diego Llorente was one of the best players for Rayo Vallecano this season despite the club couldn’t get away from relegation. Now Real Madrid have to think what to do with the defender.

There are several teams in La Liga, for example Villarreal and Málaga, that would like to take the youngster on loan for the next season. Real Madrid don’t even think on selling Diego Llorente because they see potential in the defender to take over Pepe’s work once the Portuguese retires from the club.

The 22-year-old defender played 33 games in La Liga this season scoring 2 goals. He can also play as stopper and he was a key player for Paco Jémez, Rayo Vallecano’s coach.

Zidane thinks Llorente could be a great defender for Real Madrid but it’s hard to spot an opportunity for him in the next season. With Sergio Ramos, Pepe, Varane and Nacho, Rela Madrid have already four players to cover the full back position.
