Striker Fernando Llorente has today completed a return to his native Spain, joining reigning Europa League Champions Sevilla on a permanent transfer after having his Juventus contract terminated by mutual consent.
Upon arriving in Turin in the summer of 2013, El Rey Leon quickly established himself as a mainstay in attack, scoring 18 goals as the Bianconeri romped to a resounding third consecutive Scudetto title in 2013/14.
The Spaniard added a further nine strikes to his Juventus tally the following campaign, helping his side to a fourth Scudetto in a row, a tenth Coppa Italia triumph and a record seventh Italian Super Cup in Shanghai earlier this month.
Llorente had a knack for scoring decisive goals in important matches, including his very first in the black and white stripes in a 2-1 victory against Hellas Verona in September 2013 and a memorable headed equaliser against Real Madrid two months later at Juventus Stadium.
A force to be reckoned with on the pitch, polite and amiable off it, El Rey Leon demonstrated a tireless work ethic during his time at the club and reaped just rewards with goals and silverware.
Everyone associated with Juventus Football Club would like to wish Fernando all the best for his new adventure in the south of Spain.
