Fernando Torres To Leave Atletico Madrid At Season End

Atletico Madrid's Fernando Torres sits on the substitutes bench before a Spanish La Liga soccer match between Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid at the Metropolitano stadium in Madrid Spain. Striker Torres said

Between 2001-07, Torres bagged 82 goals in 214 appearances for the Los Rojiblancos before transferring to Liverpool for four years, where he became a darling of the Kop scoring 65 times in 102 appearances. "His kids speak English, so perhaps it is time to learn Chinese which he can offer to his siblings with a few years in the Far East".

"I physically and mentally feel able to continue playing".

Cristiano Ronaldo - the Portugal forward was less than impressed when manager Zinedine Zidane ended his afternoon with just 63 minutes gone, but once again, he made a telling contribution as he took his tally to 24 goals in his last 13 games.

This was confirmed during a press conference on Monday by the player whose contract expires in the summer.

Diego Simeone has ended speculation surrounding his future at Atletico Madrid by stating he will remain at the Wanda Metropolitano for next season.

"There's not a problem between me and the coach", Torres said.

U.S. weighs military action on Syria attack
The new proposed United Nations resolution includes rival Russian and Western proposals for a new body to assess blame. Russia's Defense Ministry said two Israeli aircraft targeted the T4 air base in Homs province, firing eight missiles.

The two capital clubs will now switch their attentions back to the Champions League and the Europa League, respectively, with games against Juventus (for Real) and Sporting CP (for Atleti) this week. Subs: Angel Correa (for Vitolo, 61) 6, Gabi (for Costa, 71) 6, Kevin Gameiro (for Partey, 82) 6.

A win against Atletico would have guaranteed them the second spot behind their nemesis and arch-rivals Barcelona. After spells at Chelsea and Milan, the frontman returned to Atletico in January 2015.

The club has already begun taking steps to remedy this with the signing of one of the best players in this season's La Liga and an ex-cantenaro; defensive midfielder Rodri from Villarreal for €20m as a long-term replacement for skipper Gabi. He repeatedly declares his affection for the team he grew up cheering for and joined at 11.

"I'm very attached to Atletico so it should happen sooner or later", he said.

"I don't know where that information comes from", he told the 'Telefoot', as quoted by Marca.

On the global stage Torres has also shone, helping Spain win the UEFA European Championship twice-he netted in both finals-and the FIFA World Cup.
