Atletico Madrid won an unlikely league title a few years ago and not many expect them to repeat the same feat again with the likes of Barcelona and Real Madrid growing evermore stronger.
Atletico, though, have tried to prove this notion wrong by splashing out on several players in this transfer window. They have been one of the highest spenders in the summer after bringing in the likes of Jackson Martinez from Porto. The arrival of several new faces is likely to threaten the position of Fernando Torres in the team. The former Chelsea forward is on loan from AC Milan.
He is regarded as a legend at Atletico, but this is unlikely to help him in terms of first-team opportunities. Torres appears to be aware of it, and he claims that he will help Atletico in any way to help lift the league title once again. The 31-year-old forward is no longer at the prime of his career. He appears to have lost the bulk of his pace along with his finishing skills as well. A lifelong Atletico fan, he watched his team lift the league title. Torres appears to be keen on doing the same as a player. He has never won the la Liga title.
“There are still trophies for me to win. For example, I’m missing a league title. I have never won one and it would be very special to win it with Atletico. You’ve always got to go for everything. I’d give my life and everything I have to win that.I want to go on winning, I feel great and full of enthusiasm for playing at the top level. I still have many years left to play and I want to enjoy them here.I am pleased to have the number I grew up with at the club again,” said Torres.
