Former Liverpool and Chelsea striker Fernando Torres wants to stay at Atletico Madrid beyond the end of the season.
The 31-year-old re-joined his boyhood club Atleti from AC Milan on an 18-month loan deal back in January, and he will be a free agent at the end of June when his contract at the San Siro expires.
The forward has reiterated his desire to remain at the Calderon and is hopeful of reaching an agreement with the Spanish capital club.
“It’s no secret that I want to continue at Atletico,” he is quoted as saying in AS.
“When we sit down to talk about the future, if Atletico feel the same as I do, everything will be fairly easy and straightforward.”
