Atletico Madrid star forward Fernando Torres has announced that he is negotiating a 2 year contract renewal with the club which is almost done with few details left to be taken care of.
“Right now, it is being finalised. Hopefully the small details that need to be resolved will happen soon.” said Torres during a publicity event on Thursday.
Torres had begun his second stint at Atletico Madrid in January 2015 after a disappointing run at AC Milan. However playing for the Los Rojiblancos for the past season-and-a-half he has played a pivotal role in the club’s domestic as well as Champions League success. Atletico lost to Real Madrid 5-3 on penalties in a thrilling Champions League Final.
The 32-year-old Spanish striker has scored 11 goals in 30 league appearances this season and has featured in 70 matches with 18 goals and 5 assists to his name since January 2015.
Earlier reports had suggested that the Spanish striker who has not been included in the 23-member Spain squad for Euro 2016, would leave the club this summer after contract negotiations failed.
However the story seems to be entirely different now with both the parties holding talks to keep the Spanish forward at Vicente Calderon for 2 more years.
