Llorente wants Spurs move

Former Tottenham Hotspur forward Fernando Llorente is waiting on a proposal from Manchester United as he delays the decision to pick his next club.

The Spain international was released by Spurs when his contract expired during the summer and he has since remained a free-agent without pursuing a new side.

According to The Sun, the Red Devils are likely to sanction the loan departure of Alexis Sanchez to Inter Milan whereby the Serie A side will only pay half of the attacker's £500,000-a-week wages.

The same publication adds that the Chilean's departure will ease the wagebill at the Red Devils and that could witness them make an approach for Llorente.

Llorente struggled to secure regular gametime during his two seasons with Spurs and he managed just 13 goals from 66 appearances across all competitions.

United currently have Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford at their disposal to lead the line but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer may want another marksman with the club competing in four competitions.
