Llorente Deal Unlikely

News originating fromBasque TV station ETB have dropped a transfer bombshell in that Llorene has told Bilbao that he wishes to leave the club this summer.
Manchester Utd, Juventus and Tottenham have all been linked with the striker, however the likely hood of Tottenham obtaining the striker's services are slight at best.
Juventus is the strikers likely destination, who see Llorente as the perfect striker, essentially bowing out of the RVP race with the demands needed to beat the competition being too high.
Manchester Utd are going all out for RVP so this would count the Premier League runners up out of this race.
The only chance Tottenham may have of beating Juventus to his signature is if Conte does resign from his position of manager (as conflicting messages in the Italian press have reported that he is to resign following match fixing scandal).
I believe we missed the boat on landing Llorente last season and I would expect him to be playing in Turin next season if he leaves.
Come on you Spurs!
