Fernando Torres set for Japan or Major League Soccer

July 3, 2018 Off By Sports Writer

Fernando Torres is weighing up his options after receiving one offer from Japan and one from Major League Soccer.

Sagan Tosu and Chicago Fire have both offered the former Spanish international striker a contract after leaving the Wanda Metropolitano.

Having left Atletico Madrid at the end of the season after an emotional farewell saw him score a brace against Eibar in his final outing for the club, Torres now has two options.

The former Liverpool and Chelsea striker is expected to follow Andres Iniesta in moving to Japan by signing for Sagan Tosu, meaning he will come face to face with the ex-Barcelona captain.

AS say that the Spanish legend will put pen to paper on a three year contract worth 6.2 million euros, or 120,000 euros per week.

However, further reports claim he could yet decide on Chicago Fire, who have offered him a similar deal.

Torres returned to Atletico Madrid from AC Milan in 2015 but started only 15 games in all competitions last season, with a mere seven having come in La Liga.

Despite that, many Colchoneros were gutted to see El Niño depart for what is likely to be his final adventure in professional football now at the age of 34-years-old.

With 121 goals in 348 games for his boyhood club, finally winning a major trophy with the Rojiblancos in the Europa League in Lyon in May, Torres will be fondly remembered.
