Torres offered new Atleti deal

Atletico Madrid have reportedly offered Fernando Torres a two-year contract and the striker wants his future settled before the Champions League Final.

AS reports that Torres’ future will be sorted in the coming days after the contract offer was made in April, shortly before the Champions League quarter-final first leg at Barcelona, in which Torres scored, with Diego Simeone’s approval.

Torres though wants to know if the Champions League Final, against Real Madrid in Milan on May 28, will be his last game with Atletico or not, as he is out of contract this summer, having signed on loan from Milan for the duration of his deal with the Rossoneri.

If Torres doesn’t stay on at Vincente Calderon then it’s expected he would have the option of going to China or as a designated player in MLS.

Tiago Mendes has also been offered a new one-year contract by Atletico, with the veteran midfielder still recovering from a broken leg, but recently returning to training.

Atleti waited until Tiago was further along in his recovery before making the proposal but were going to extend his deal before he suffered his injury, in November.
