Fernando Torres confirms Atlético Madrid return
The 30-year-old is heading back to his boyhood club.
AC Milan striker Fernando Torres has confirmed that he is returning to former club Atlético Madrid. The 30-year-old, who started his career with Atléti at the age of 11, is moving on loan from the Italian champions in an 18-month loan deal that is expected to allow Italian winger Alessio Cerci to move in the other direction. Torres tweeted the following confirmation:

It is hard to see Torres managing to break into Atléti’s first team given the awful form hes been in for the last few years. Since his record-breaking move to Chelsea from Liverpool back in January 2011, he has scored a combined total of just 21 league goals, and just one since arriving at Milan. However, if anything is going to rekindle his goalscoring spirit, it’s the emotion of returning to his favourite team.
Well, that and Diego Simeone screaming in his face.
