Juninho wanted Marcos Llorente

Lyon Sporting Director Juninho wanted to sign 24-year-old midfielder Marcos Llorente from Real Madrid before he joined Atletico earlier this week, according to L’Équipe.

The size of the deal, €40m, was probably considered too expensive by the Lyon board, but Juninho felt that the player’s profile matched what Les Gones were looking for in midfield.

OL did not play on their special relationship with Real Madrid in this instance.
