Champions League – Roma vs Real Madrid The midfielder spoke about his future
Santiago Solari handed Marcos Llorente a rare start for Real Madrid in Casemiro‘s absence on Tuesday evening and the Spaniard didn’t disappoint, while he was quick to make clear that he plans to clear up his future once the winter transfer window opens.
He had been linked with a move away in January, but his situation may now be re-evaluated.
“When the winter market arrives I will talk to the club and my family,” he said in the mixed zone.
“I will decide from there what is best for me.
“My dream is to succeed at Real Madrid.
“It’s clear that all footballers like to be playing.
“I am at Real Madrid and, I repeat, it’s my dream to succeed here.
“Today I’ve shown that I am ready for when the coach needs me, I hope to have more days like this and grow as a footballer.”
The defeat to Eibar was the first mark against Solari since he took charge of the capital city club, yet Llorente feels as though Tuesday’s victory has shown a willingness to bounce back.
“Today was an important match following the defeat in the league,” he said.
“This victory gives us a little breathing room.
“We wanted to top the group and we’ve achieved that.”
Next up is a return to LaLiga Santander action, when Valencia visit on Saturday.
