The Spaniard striker refused to put pen and paper to a deal with Athletic Bilbao and his contract runs out at June 30, 2013.
The Spanish international Fernando Llorente decides not to lengthen his career at Athletic Bilbao as he rejects renewal offer from the La Liga side. His actions leads up to confirm that he has been attracted by Seria A side Juventus which offered Bilbao 20€ deal for the Spaniard. This is a big blow for Europa runner ups Bilabo as they could not afford him to move away for free on next transfer window which might force them to hand away their main striker away.
Llorente has been chased by Juventus and his interest to play for Champions league could link him with the Seria A winners.
Llorente played 298 games for Bilabo scoring 110 times.
