Fernando Torres is playing with Athletic Madrid on a loan deal that is close to reaching it’s end but there is a question that is surrounding the Spanish player and it’s in relation to what will happen with the 32 year old attacker after his time at the Vicente Calderon Stadium arrives.
Torres does not play a very influential role in Athletic Madrid as he is a player who has spent time on the sidelines of certain matches while there are other occasions where he gets playing time as a substitute.
The veteran player himself is not sure as to what will happen with him in the near future as he was asked about the possibility of having a contract renewal and Torres replied by saying: “Will there be a contract renewal for me at Athletic at the end of the season? That is not a question for me. There is nothing new about this matter. He said further that. My dream is to win a title with Athletic Madrid. I want to celebrate a title with this team. We have experienced very nice things, I started in Second Division and it would be a perfect moment for me.”
When the loan deal with Athletic Madrid expires, his time with Ac.Milan will also be reaching it’s end. The Italian club does have the option to keep hold of Fernando Torres for a longer period of time but considering his disappointing stint with Ac.Milan, it’s not likely that they will choose to extend the contract of Fernando Torres.
During the time that Fernando Torres spent wearing the jersey of Ac.Milan, he only managed to score 1 goal in 10 appearances which is extremely unsatisfactory and it’s proof of the mediocrity that Fernando Torres is going through.
Lazio is believed to be interested in signing Fernando Torres and it can be a viable option for the 32 year old attacker to go with if Athletic Madrid decides to not extend his contract any further.
