Torres left open the possibility of returning to Atletico to end his career — but only after realising his dreams with Chelsea.
He said: “Right now I can’t see my return — maybe when I’ve achieved at Chelsea what I want to do. If I am still sufficiently able to compete, I would return. But only if I am in good condition.
“I would go to fulfil the objectives of the club, whatever they would be — even if it was to not play in Europe.”
