Atletico Madrid have announced that Fernando Torres has put pen to paper on a new one-year deal with the La Liga side.
Torres became a free agent on July 1 when his contract expired. The 32-year-old striker had technically still been on the books with AC Milan, having signed a permanent contract with the Italian side last January but spent the last 18 months on loan at his boyhood club.
With that deal ending though the Spaniard has agreed a new permanent contract with Atletico, signing a one-year agreement with Diego Simeone’s side.
Torres scored 11 times in 30 La Liga outings last season, helping his side to a third place finish in the Spanish top flight, behind rivals Barcelona and Real Madrid.
The former Liverpool and Chelsea forward also netted once in the Champions League, helping his team to the final of the tournament for the second time in three years before losing on penalties to Real Madrid.
