We believe in Llorente states Juventus director
The 28-year-old has been linked with a possible loan move to Barcelona just a couple of months after leaving La Liga to join the Bianconeri, but Marotta has denied those reports.
“We believe in Llorente,” he told Tuttosport.
“We have no intention of selling him.”
Coach Antonio Conte used the partnership of Mirko Vucinic and Carlos Tevez in the opening match of the Serie A season against Sampdoria, as well as the win over Lazio in the Italian Super Cup.
Llorente’s future has been thrown into doubt as a result and has ignited rumours of a return to La Liga.
