Llorente: Juve are like Barca and Real
New Juventus striker Fernando Llorente has compared the club to Barcelona and Real Madrid as he prepares to move to Serie A from La Liga.
Spain international Llorente, 27, signed a four-year contract with Juve in January after deciding to leave Athletic Bilbao on a free transfer.
In an interview with Marca he has said he found it easy to join the Italian giants because of their reputation and stature in the world game.
"It's one of the best teams in Europe and the best in Italy," he said. "I'm lucky to be able to play for a team like that. I'm really looking forward to entering a new phase.
"[I joined Juventus] because it has impressed me ever since it expressed an interest. It's a really big club, comparable to Real and Barça. It's as though I've always known it was my team."
