Torres made his debut for Atlético de Madrid in 2000. He is the youngest player to play for Atleti, the youngest goalscorer, and the youngest to play for the Spanish national side. Torres is a forward, and wears the number 9 shirt. He is a complete player; strong in the air, quick, skillful with both feet and not physically intimidated. He is currently one of the coveted players in Europe, but it doesn't look like he will move any time soon, as his love for 'los rojiblancos' is well known. As of December 30, 2004, Torres' goal tally for the club stands at an impressive 50.
However, many clubs are rumoured to be interested, with Chelsea and Barcelona leading the chase. It is understood that Mancehster United have already had a multi-million pound bid rejected (it is unknown whether this was in the pre or post-Wayne Rooney signing). José Antonio Reyes recently informed Arsene Wenger of Arsenal that Torres was an essential transfer target, because, having played alongside him, he knows how great he is and Arsenal cannot afford to let him move to their rivals in the Northeast.
Fernando Torres was the top Spanish-born scorer in the Spanish Liga in the 2004-2005 season and looks set to follow up this record, currently top Spanish scorer in this season so far. Torres has pledged his future to Atlético de Madrid but shows his future dreams of playing for a champions league club. He said he will stay at Atletico until he has a year on his contract and will make a big money move (Im predicting a £30,000,000 + move to one of Europe's biggest clubs).
