Atletico Madrid wants to sign Fernando Torres for the second time. The Spanish club is looking to take Torres on loan for 1 year during the next summer transfer window.
Torres had begun his career with Atletico Madrid. He had joined Atletico Madrid in 1995 at the age of just 11 years. He was a member of the youth squad of Atletico for 6 years and then, he got the chance to play for the senior team of Atletico.
Torres’ record for Atletico Madrid is amazing. He played 214 matches for Atletico and he scored 82 goals. These stats are clearly telling that Torres was a real match winner for Atletico Madrid.
At the start of the season, Torres had said, “I love Atletico Madrid. That club is very special for me. I have learnt all my football there. I would love to go back there at some point of time in future.”
A Spanish source said yesterday, “Atletico wants to get Fernando back and Fernando also wants to go back there. He might not get that much money at Atletico, but, he wouldn’t mind getting lesser wages there.”
Apart from Atletico Madrid, some other clubs including Paris Saint Germain, Besiktas and Juventus have also shown interest in the Spanish striker.
Fernando Torres was in decent form in the earlier parts of the ongoing season. He has featured for the Blues in 25 matches in this season so far and he has scored 13 goals. But, he has been a bit out of nick in the last few games and after Chelsea’s defeat against Swansea City in the Capital One Cup match played last week, Torres was booed by the Chelsea fans and the Spaniard is said to be very upset about that. Chelsea had lost that match by 0-2.
