Fernando Torres close to signing a new deal with Atletico Madrid
Fernando Torres has recently hinted that he is close to signing a new deal with Atletico Madrid.
The former Chelsea and Liverpool player has said that the deal has almost been completed, and there are only some minor details that are left to be agreed.
Fernando Torres has experienced a kind of revival after signing for Atletico Madrid. Indeed, he has managed to score 11 goals in 30 appearances in the Spanish League. He was also an effective player to help Atletico Madrid reach the Champions League final which they lost on penalties against Real Madrid.
Torres has stated that he wants to stay with Atletico Madrid and that he is happy playing for his boyhood club. For him, it is thanks to the manager Diego Simeone that he is back to his best and hope that he will remain there until the end of his career.
It is expected that the deal will be finalized soon after the return of Atletico’s president and chairman from a business trip. Fernando Torres, who has not been selected for the Spain team that will be participating in the Euros, will want to make full use of the summer break to recover and prepare himself for the next season.
Fernando Torres has also pleaded for Diego Simeone to stay at the club. The Atletico manager has recently said that he will need time to think about his future after the Champions League final defeat. Torres has stated that he is the right to reflect on his career and that he expects him to stay as manager next season. For him, he is the best person to manage Atletico Madrid and that the board should do everything to keep Simeone at the club.
