Diego Llorente unlikely to stay at Roma

Spanish defender Diego Llorente could be among the group of players destined to leave Roma this offseason.

The centreback is nearing the end of his second consecutive loan at Roma from Leeds United, but his future remains uncertain despite seemingly having convinced the club of his qualities as a back-up option to the likes of Gianluca Mancini and Evan Ndicka.

Today’s edition of Il Messaggero suggests that despite a low-cost buy option was included in the initial deal for Llorente, the Spaniard will not be permanently signed by the Giallorossi.

Instead, Roma will send him back to Leeds – Llorente is expected to be included in a list of approximately eight first team players set to leave the club this summer.
