Fernando Torres, Atletico Madrid, Spain

FERNANDO TORRES

Thirty-two year old Torres, on loan from AC Milan, has stated that there was “nothing new” regarding a new contract for him at Atletico. Torres’ old contract is due to expire at the end of the Spanish La Liga football season.

Atletico Madrid head coach Diego Simeone has recently hinted that there will soon be an announcement about the future of Torres with Atletico.

Simeone remarked that, "Torres did a very good job against Barcelona, he will play as a starter again. Over the coming days the club will inform on what the decision is in this regard."

Torres scored an early goal against Barca, but was later sent off in Barcelona’s 2-1 Champions League defeat of Atletico this week.

Atleti players including defender Filipe Luis did not believe Torres should have been sent off. Boss Simeone claimed he could not risk voicing his true opinion on the matter.

FC Barcelona are in first place on the Spanish La Liga Table, followed by Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid in a close title race. Villarreal is in fourth place. Torres will be a key place if Atletico Madrid are to with the Primera League silverware in 2016!
