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.
The 24-cap ex-Spain international has enjoyed success throughout his career, although his time in North London has been tough.
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.
