Tottenham should grant Llorente his wish to return to La Liga

Tottenham Hotspur striker Fernando Llorente has admitted that he would love to return to Spain.

And Tottenham should allow him to complete a fairy-tale return to his home country, despite his recent upturn in form.

Speaking after Tottenham’s Champions League win over PSV, Llorente told reporters (quotes via London Evening Standard): “I’ve been away from home for many years, I’d love to go back to La Liga.”

The 33-year-old is approaching the final stages of his illustrious playing career.

Having spent time in the Premier League with Swansea City and Tottenham, Llorente favours a move back to Spain to finish his playing days.

With Harry Kane the undisputed first-choice striker, Llorente has had to settle for a minor role in this Spurs side.

And it is no secret that Spurs are in the hunt for a new striker, further throwing the future of Llorente into doubt.

It is only fair that Mauricio Pochettino grants the 6ft 4in centre-forward his wish to return to Spain.

Spurs will be looking to bring in a younger deputy to Kane and Llorente would get his chance to return to his homeland; an arrangement that suits everyone.
