Torres keen on Atletico return

Torres was a hit at the Vicente Calderon and in Spanish football, before joining Liverpool.

“I hope to experience many things still, but for me it is an exceptional club,” he told Marca. “When I was there I couldn’t do any more, but I would like to go back.

“Of course I don’t know if I will retire there, but I would like to go back and finish some things that are left to do.

“Right now I have no plans to leave England. Not to Spain, not to Italy, not to another English club.”

He added: “I needed a change and to come to Liverpool was perfect.

“If I could choose, the only place I would never go to is Real Madrid.”
