Fernando Torres Completes Transfer To J-League Side Sagan Tosu

Fernando Torres

Former Liverpool and Chelsea striker Fernando Torres has followed Andres Iniesta to Japan by joining J1 League club Sagan Tosu.

His contract expired at the end of the 2017-18 season and he will continue his career in Asia, following in the footsteps of Barcelona legend Iniesta.

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

"We have had offers from every continent". "My new team will be the Japanese side Sagan Tosu".

"I think that Japan and the Japanese league is going to be a great experience".

Torres' former global 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.

Raptors 'generated buzz' in potential trade for Kawhi Leonard
Now there is speculation that Masai Ujiri could be inclined to make a bold win-now trade and acquire Kawhi Leonard from the Spurs. Leonard played in only nine games in 2017-18, scoring 16.2 points a night, well below his average of 25.5 in 2016-17.

According to reports, Torres also had offers to sign for Australian side Sydney FC and Major League Soccer club Chicago Fire.

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

"Sagan Tosu were one of the first clubs to show an interest in me".

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

The World Cup victor had been linked with moves to the A-League and MLS but - like Iniesta at Vissel Kobe - the next stage of his career will be in Japan.

Across two spells with Atletico, along with his successful stint in England with Liverpool and Chelsea plus a brief loan in Italy AC Milan, Torres has scored 256 goals at club level.
