Torres returned to Atletico in January 2015, initially on loan before making the move back to his first club permanent last summer
The extension means Torres will now play a part in Atletico’s maiden season playing in their new home, the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium, after departing the Vicente Calderon at the conclusion of the 2015-16 campaign
The former Spain striker has scored 28 goals since returning to the Vicente Calderon but has fallen down the pecking order behind Antoine Griezmann and Kevin Gameiro under Diego Simeone.
In a brief statement on Atletico’s official website, Torres said: “I am very happy to continue one more year together.”
