Atletico Madrid striker Fernando Torres has officially left his boyhood club and moved Far East where he already put pen to paper on a deal with a Japanese side Sagan Tosu.
Former Liverpool forward has already been presented as the new player of this Japanese side with more details on the duration of the contract expected to be announced.
Torres had been involved in negotiations with Sagan Tosu for several weeks but it appears that the two sides managed to find the common ground and materialise the move for the 34-year-old.
The Spanish international striker moved to Japan off the back of a 10-goal season with his boyhood club.
Torres was the subject of interest from Melbourne Victory and Sydney FC who both wanted to bring him to the Australian A-League but Torres reportedly even lowered his wage demands in order to facilitate the move to Japan.
Sagan Tosu are currently sitting in 17th place in the Japanese J-League, one place above the bottom spot.
