This. Can offer relief for Fred and Matic whilst waiting for Pogba and Mctominay. If it turns out he is suited to the epl and plays well we could try make it permanent in the summer.Yeah but with experience in playing for both Madrid clubs, technically gifted, young and desperate to impress, what could go wrong with a loan deal? Seems like a good short term solution to our injury crisis tbh.
Nah wouldn't be the case. They're completely different players. Bruno Fernandes is a pure #10, Marcos Llorente is a holding mid/deep lying passing midfielder.Maybe this could be like when Arsenal took Ceballos from Real last summer,if we could get him and Bruno this window that at least would give us something different in midfield. Maybe we need someone on twitter to ask the tier 1 journos about this.
Hopefully it isn't a case of Utd turning to Llorente because they are walking away from Fernandes. I know odds mean little but still can't recall us 1/20 to sign someone before.
Hasn't he flopped since he moved, hence that's why he's available?Definitely worth a punt and evidence of increased vision at the club. If he does well, it’s a gem and we’ll be hailed as geniuses and if he isn’t up to it then he’s just cover anyway. Perfect January signing.
Yes but that doesn’t make it a bad move. It’s a loan so it’s zero risk and it can only be a win for us. We desperately need cover there and we aren’t going to sign anyone better in Jan. Him and Bruno would be excellent business.
Fair point. Lets hope that A Madrid just doesn't suit him.Yes but that doesn’t make it a bad move. It’s a loan so it’s zero risk and it can only be a win for us. We desperately need cover there and we aren’t going to sign anyone better in Jan. Him and Bruno would be excellent business.
It's a show of increased vision because he's a squad player at his current club with potential who hasn't been playing much, we always get linked to such obvious targets, so it's nice to see someone who you'd think would have needed a bit more scouting and thought.
According to my extensive Google research it appears that Llorente derives from Lorenzo which in turn is derived from the germanic word for laurel, so it seems apt we name him Mark LaurelNeed to make him sound more English for the Brexit Boys purposes so Boris doesn't find out. Any ideas? Mark Laurentey?
