DEAL DONE: Sagan Tosu sign Fernando Torres

Fernando Torres has announced he is joining Japanese top flight side Sagan Tosu as a free agent after leaving Atletico Madrid.

Torres made his debut with Atletico Madrid in Spain in 2001 before playing eight seasons in England (for Liverpool and Chelsea) until 2014. He returned to Madrid in 2015 after playing for AC Milan.

“I have had offers from France, Germany and even one from Spain but at no point did I ever think about going to another European team. I wanted a new challenge in a completely different place,” Torres said on Tuesday.
