Fernando Torres has confirmed which club he will play for next

Fernando Torres has confirmed which club he will play for next”

My new team will be Sagan Tosu.

The former Liverpool and Chelsea striker, who won the European Champions and the World Cup with Spain too, would have been perhaps the biggest signing in Rangers' recent history and his decision to go to Japan has left some fans genuinely disappointed, despite Torres never actually being linked with a move to Ibrox. "My new team will be Sagan Tosu of Japan", the 34-year-old Torres said at an event held at the gym he owns in Madrid on Tuesday.

His Atletico Madrid contract ran out this summer and was not renewed, with his final appearance as a 90th-minute substitute in the Europa League final defeat of Marseille. They were one of the first clubs to show interest in me, and I appreciate their insistence and how they convinced me with their sporting, personal and cultural project. There were many options, different offers from all the continents.

"I hope to make my debut, at home, on July 21, then to be there for many years".

Former Spain teammate Andres Iniesta, who joined Vissel Kobe from Barcelona, will also be playing in the J-League and Torres said that meant he would already have a good friend in the competition.

The move was also announced on Sagan Tosu's official website, with the club saying he would be given the No. 9 shirt, which he has worn for the majority of his career.

After a spell with Italian giants AC Milan, Torres returned to Atletico, where he was able to recapture some of his past glory―even if the goals didn't return.

Torres added: "I've always been treated really well in Asia and Sagan Tosu have made a great effort and I'm very grateful".
