Fernando Torres to join Sagan Tosu

Fernando Torres has confirmed that he will sign for Sagan Tosu.

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 club.

Torres had been in negotiations with Sagan Tosu at the start of the month, though talks reportedly fell through. However, a breakthrough in negotiations has seen the 34-year-old finally rubber-stamp his move to Japan.

Sagan Tosu are currently 17th in the J-League, just one place above bottom, having won just three of their 15 games thus far this season.

Torres scored 10 goals in his final season at Atletico, scoring twice against Eibar in his final ever LaLiga appearance.

One of the most decorated players in Europe, Torres won the Europa League in 2017-18 with Atletico, along with the FA Cup, the Champions League and the Europa League with Chelsea.

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