Fernando Llorente is staying with Athletic Bilbao, despite interest from Barcelona and Real Madrid.

The 25-year-old, who was involved in Spain’s World Cup triumph, has declared his happiness with his current side.

Bilbao’s president Fernando Garcia Macua has said that their talisman will not be leaving unless a club meets his high buy-out clause.

Macua told “He (Llorente) is not going to leave here while I am president of this club.

“He is not going to leave Athletic this summer and no-one can negotiate terms for him. Whoever wants to sign him has to pay the clause and all the extras. The player wants to continue at Athletic (Bilbao) for a long time to come.”

Llorente said on the issue: “I am already at a big club and it (the transfer talk) is not something that plays on my mind because I know what I want.

“I just want to get back to my best level and score goals for Athletic. I am not thinking about anything else.”
