At the start of the last day of the transfer window, Chelsea felt rather confident that Fernando Llorente would join them from Swansea City, reuniting with Antonio Conte, with whom he has worked at Juventus, winning titles there.
By the end of the day, the Spaniard had signed at Tottenham, another player who, for his own reasons, turned down the opportunity to play for Chelsea this season.
I’m very, very happy to join Tottenham, an amazing club. I can only say that I come here to help Tottenham to win titles. I think they are working very, very well in the last years and I like it a lot
the 32-year-old striker told the club’s official website once the deal was finalized.
I am 32 years old, but I want to learn every day. I think I can learn a lot of things from Harry Kane and all the players. I can learn with Pochettino a lot and I am going to do my best here
Llorente said, repeating that at 32 he is hungrier than ever to play at the highest level and win titles.
I think I can do more things in my career and my dream is to do that here in Tottenham
the former Athletic Club, Juventus and Sevilla striker also said. According to reports, Tottenham paid Swansea a fee in the region of £15 million.
