Atletico Madrid great Fernando Torres: Real Madrid move was impossible

Atletico Madrid great Fernando Torres says he could never have considered a move to Real Madrid.

Torres, who has announced his retirement, has hinted he had offers from Real during his career.

He told AS: "I don't like to talk about hypothesis. But that would never have happened. It is said that nothing is impossible, but that was impossible, it would never have changed my mind.

"It is difficult to remember what Atleti was like at that time, it is very complicated. The fans who lived through it have a hard time going back and thinking that it was real. Who knows what would have happened?

"I left my home, Atleti, to win titles, among many other reasons. And when I left Liverpool for Chelsea I was still pursuing the same thing, so I do not regret it."
