Spanish forward Fernando Torres is expected to remain at Vicente Calderon beyond the current season, Cadena SER can reveal.
The experienced striker will not be returning to San Siro as his deal with AC Milan expires in June, and his future was in doubt as Atletico failed to offer him a new contract.
However, after Torres enjoyed a run in the side and scored some important goals, los Colchoneros have changed their stance and they are set to tie the former Liverpool star to a new deal.
The 32-year-old did well to score 10 goals in 29 league outings this term, which is his highest tally in a league campaign since 2010.
At the same time, Atletico plan to offer a new contract to midfielder Tiago Mendes, who has missed the season finale through injury.
Diego Simeone believes both players can still contribute to his team and he is keen to keep them at Vicente Calderon.
