Last summer, Leeds United’s Diego Llorente returned to AS Roma on a loan deal with an obligation to buy if certain set conditions are fulfilled.

The centre-back has made 29 appearances in all competitions this season and has kept his place in the side since Daniele De Rossi replaced José Mourinho last month.

Paris Saint-Germain tried signing the Leeds owned player in the winter market but the Serie A side weren’t willing to part ways with him.

That’s covered by Metropolitan Magazine, as is Roma’s will to retain the 30-year-old until the end of the season, partly for financial reasons.

It’s claimed the ‘transfer market is already calling’ the Spaniard, and the Giallorossi could carry out a ‘truly complex operation’. The Italian club will have to make Llorente’s stay permanent by paying the clause worth €5m to the Whites, whether the conditions are met or not.

The feeling is they wouldn’t get him for less anyway, and that €5m represents a good deal.

The Leeds United man is attracting attention from elsewhere and this is an opportunity for Roma to earn a profit from his sale. Metropolitan Magazine explain that PSG could launch a decisive attack for Llorente, by tabling a €10-12m bid after this season.

Roma are looking to buy Llorente from Leeds and then sell him for at least €10m in the summer… it can significantly help them improve their finances.
