Fernando Torres Confirms Move To Japan On 18-Month Deal - Boomplay


The ex-Atletic and Chelsea striker has settled on his next challenge after leaving Atletico Madrid

Ex- Liverpool and Chelsea striker Fernando Torres has announced he is heading to Japan to join J1 League side Sagan Tosu.


Torres left his boyhood club Atletico Madrid following their Europa League victory in search of a free transfer this summer and had been linked with moves to the Bundesliga, MLS and Australian A-League.

The World Cup winner, who started his career in Madrid, spent two seasons with AC Milan and four seasons back at Atletico after scoring 126 goals during his eight-year stint in the Premier League.


Despite lying 17th in the Japanese top flight, relegation-threatened Sagan Tosu have won the race for his signature.

Winning the Champions League with Chelsea was one of the highlights of Torres's time in English football.


Torres is following in the footsteps of his World Cup and European Championship-winning team-mate Andres Iniesta, who recently joined Japanese side Vissel Kobe after leaving Barcelona.

Sagan Tosu president Minoru Takehara said: "It's an honour to sign Fernando Torres.

"Sagan Tosu are a hard-working team who are always trying to improve, it's small but wants to grow. Torres' signing will help with that."
