Turin-based daily newspaper Tuttosport claims that Spanish striker Fernando Llorente is widely expected to leave the club in the coming days.
The Spain international is no longer in the first team plans of coach Max Allegri and Juventus seem ready to let him go for a reasonable price.
And while Sevilla and few more top sides are keen on his services, Llorente hopes the proposed move to Real Madrid would come to fruition.
It is no secret that new coach Rafael Benitez sees the Lion King as a perfect back-up for Karim Benzema, but los Blancos chairman Florentino Perez does not think the club should sign the former Athletic Bilbao star.
Juventus are even prepared to exchange Llorente for Asier Illarramendi, and it remains to be seen where the striker will end up.
Despite nearing the exit door, the 30-year-old remains fans’ favourite in Turin as the Bianconeri faithful are delighted with his contribution since joining from Athletic.
