The former Real Madrid star, now donning Atletico colors, has long been on the radar of prominent European clubs like Liverpool and Man Utd. Recent reports even suggested Diego Simeone’s reservations about the Spaniard’s suitability, despite acknowledging his skill and versatility.

Compounded by Atletico’s enduring financial struggles, there were speculations of a potential €60 million transfer windfall by parting ways with Llorente, with Saudi clubs also expressing interest during their high-spending transfer window.

However, the 28-year-old has continued to feature prominently in Simeone’s plans. Llorente recently spoke to Mundo Deportivo, emphasizing that it would take an extraordinary, “bomba” offer to entice him away from the Spanish capital.

Regarding the enticing offers he’s received, Llorente explained, “Temptations come from everywhere, that’s football. But when you are comfortable in a club, you are happy and you are enjoying football… The offer from elsewhere has to be incredible for you to leave here.

Despite earlier hints of a potential departure, it appears that Llorente and Simeone maintain a strong working relationship. Llorente noted, “Well, he [the coach] is very important. He was the one who bet on me to play higher up.”

“He saw me, sat me down in his office and told me that he sees me playing a little higher up, reaching the penalty area a little more… I played several games, and everything went well. I think it is the position in which I can help the team the most, and I feel most comfortable.”

The midfielder has made a significant impact, tallying two goals in eight LaLiga appearances thus far.
