  • Fernando Torres

Torres bid farewell to Atlético Madrid at the end of last season after his second spell there, a tear falling down his cheek, to a standing ovation.

His Atletico Madrid contract ran out this summer and was not renewed, with his final appearance as a 90th-minute substitute in the Europa League final defeat of Marseille.

Former Spain striker Fernando Torres has announced he is joining Japanese side Sagan Tosu.

After a spell with Italian giants AC Milan, Torres returned to Atletico, where he was able to recapture some of his past glory―even if the goals didn't return.

The former Spain global, who was part of the country's 2010 World Cup and Euro 2012 winning squads, has scored 38 goals in 110 appearances for La Roja and netted 82 and 65 times, respectively, during his stints with Atleti and Liverpool.

Torres' former global teammate Andrés Iniesta also moved to Japan this summer, joining Vissel Kobe after bidding farewell to Barcelona after spending 20 years at the Catalan club.

"We have had offers from every continent".

"My new team will be the Japanese side Sagan Tosu".

"Sagan Tosu was one of the first clubs to be interested in me, they have convinced me with their sporting project".

"I think Japan and the Japanese League is going to be a great experience, they have made a great effort and they believe that I can be one of the solutions so that the team returns to the place where it has to be".

I had offers from France, Germany, other clubs in Spain, but I did not want to join another European club as I had the best end possible here with my team.

For the record, the Spaniard joins Sagan with the club second-bottom of the J League with 15 games played.
