Atletico Madrid have confirmed that Fernando "El Niño" Torres has extended his current deal with the club for one additional season. The striker will now officially remain an Atleti player through to June 30, 2018. "I'm extremely pleased to continue for another season" affirmed the 33 year old.
There is an open option in the extension to extend even further the deal if both sides feel is appropriate at the conclusion of the 2017/18 LaLiga campaign with it being unlikely at this point that Torres would play anywhere else other than the club he's been part of since the age of 11.
Fernando Torres is the only Atleti striker who will be part of the first day of pre-season training tomorrow at the Majadahonda base with Griezmann incorporating at a later date and Kevin Gameiro recovering from his recent operation.
