Torres remains, but another leaves Atletico
Atlético Madrid’s live legend Fernando Torres will remain in the team. He has already announced his decision to his teammates and senior coach Diego Simeone, informs Marca. 33-year-old Torres had an enticing offer from Chinese Dalian Hean, who offered him 15m euros per season. The kid, however, preferred to stay on “Wanda Metropolitano”.
Torres has 16 matches and 2 goals in La Liga since the start of the campaign. In the summer he could continue his career in Mexico, but then rejected the offer.
This is not the case with Nicholas Gaitan. The Argentine national does not fall into Simeone’s plans and will reinforce Dalian Afan. Atletico will receive EUR 18 million and the midfielder will sign a 3-year contract.
The owner of Dalian Afan owns 15% of Atletico’s shares and sponsors the new stadium of the “matuskichite”.
