Former Athletic Bilbao striker Fernando Llorente has offered to play for Real Madrid for free.

The 37 year-old is currently a free agent after leaving Eibar.

He told El Larguero: "If (Carlo) Ancelotti would call me tomorrow to become (Karim) Benzema's reserve, I would accept without a doubt, even for free.

"When Real Madrid wanted me I was under contract with Athletic and the only way to move was for the club to pay the release clause.

"When the opportunity arose, Juventus were faster."
