Chelsea’s Fernando Torres 1/1 to join former club Atletico Madrid this summer
Competition: Premier League
Market: Torres to join Atletico Madrid
Odds: 1/1 @ 888 Sport
With Atletico Madrid bracing themselves for the departure of Brazilian-born Spanish international striker Diego Costa this summer, they are lining up a replacement, potentially in the form of Chelsea’s Fernando Torres, of whose professional senior career started with Atletico back in 2001.
Torres, 30, scored nine goals and made five assists in the league and Europe last season for the Blues. His form has been something of a worry, but many believe the English game has finally got the better of him and a move back to his native Spain could be what reinvigorates him.
The Spanish international made the World Cup squad over the likes of Alvaro Negredo and Jesus Navas this summer, and will be keenly watched by Atletico, who are yet to make a bid.
888 Sport are giving odds of 1/1 for Torres to go back to Atletico this summer, with Chelsea said to be happy cashing in on him as they look to sign more consistent strikers to boost their chances of winning silverware next season.
