Tottenham Hotspur released Fernando Llorente at the end of last season and despite being a free agent, the 34-year-old is yet to find a new club.
On August 22nd, we carried a report from Gazzetta dello Sport, who claimed Manchester United have offered a two-year deal for the striker.
It was also explained the frontman’s arrival at Old Trafford could facilitate Alexis Sanchez’s move to Inter Milan.
Friday’s edition of AS talks about Napoli’s interest in the Spaniard and says they’ve offered him a two-year deal. His representative is in advanced negotiations with the Serie A side after the latter grew tired of waiting for Inter’s Mauro Icardi.
Llorente’s camp would have informed Napoli of his availability, but he also ‘handles’ an offer from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side. He has not made a decision on his future so far, so Manchester United would remain in the picture.
It’s believe Napoli will accelerate to seek a final agreement with Llorente although James Rodriguez remains Carlo Ancelotti’s first choice target.
