"Nobody is indispensable. We are trying to create a competitive team and no player by himself, very good though he is, is able to make a team achieve its aims," Gil Marin said on Punto Radio.

"Atletico are building a team that does not revolve around Fernando Torres but around the team as a whole.

"I would delighted if Fernando was to continue here, but the future is going to be decided by Fernando himself.

"We have spoken to him and told him we would like him to stay.

"It is normal that he has doubts. It is normal that the offers and everything surrounding them has made him think.

"Torres knows that Atletico want him and if Fernando wants to continue at Atletico, he is going to continue."
