Former Chelsea and Liverpool forward, Fernando Torres has disclosed he will not continue at the Wanda Metropolitano past the current campaign, but will not retire from active football.
Torres has announced that he will leave Atletico Madrid at the end of the 2017-18 season, but vows to continue playing football elsewhere.
“It has not been an easy decision,” he revealed in a Q&A session.
“When I was ten years old, I always thought that Atlético will be my home. I’ve enjoyed the Atleti that I always dreamed about but this is going to be my last season at the club.
“It was not a simple decision, but I feel obliged to announce it.”
Torres joined his boyhood club at the age of 10, spending six years in their youth system and another six in the first team before moving to Liverpool.
The Spain international scored an impressive 65 goals in 102 league appearances for the Merseysiders before trading the Reds for a stint at Chelsea.
