Roma aim to renew Diego Llorente’s loan

Roma want to bring back Spanish defender Diego Llorente.

After concluding his six-months-long loan spell at the capital club, Llorente made his return to Leeds.

However, Llorente has been reportedly excluded from Leeds’ plans. Roma, on the other hand, are interested in renewing his loan given that Jose Mourinho appreciated his reliability and veteran status.

Roma GM Tiago Pinto will meet with Leeds in the coming days, reports Corriere dello Sport, in order to try and renegotiate a new loan of Llorente with a much lower fee included in the option to buy.
