Former Liverpool and Atletico Madrid striker to join Sagan Tosu in Japan

He announced that he is joining Sagan Tosu as a free agent after leaving Atletico Madrid last month.

The former Liverpool and Atletico Madrid striker left the Spanish club at the end of the 2017-18 season, following his emotional return to his boyhood team.

Fernando Torres, everybody's favourite floppy-haired blonde striker from the late noughties, is now 34-years-old.

But the prolific marksman has rejected the opportunity to continue plying his trade on European soil and chose to cut his teeth in the Japan Professional Football League with relegation strugglers Sagan Tosu.

It is done. Fernando Torres is a Sagan Tosu player.

"I have had offers from France, Germany and even one from Spain but at no point did I ever think about going to another European team", Torres said on Tuesday (via BBC Sport).

Torres' former worldwide teammate Andrés Iniesta also moved to Japan this summer, joining Vissel Kobe after bidding farewell to Barcelona after spending 20 years at the Catalan club.

"I wanted a new challenge in a completely different place".

While Peter Crouch has not had quite the glistening career of the Italian World Cup victor, he would certainly be taken to very kindly by the Australians.

"Sagan Tosu were one of the first clubs to be interested in me, they have convinced me with the project".

Capped over 100 times by Spain, Torres was also in La Roja's squad as they won the European Championship in 2008 and 2012, and also featured in the 2010 World Cup-winning squad.
