Atletico Madrid striker Fernando Torres not ruling out new deal

Atletico Madrid striker Fernando Torres insists he will fight to stay with the club.

The veteran comes off contract at the end of the season.

He told AS: "After all the effort I've put in to fight for my place and play, I'm not going to throw the towel in now.

"I know every game I play could be my last with Atlético. Maybe not, but that's how I feel. I play every game as if it were my last. Nobody's gifted me anything, not at all. I came in the winter transfer window and my first games were against Real Madrid and Barcelona.

"I scored, but that wasn't enough to get a starting spot. I then finished the season as a starter. The next season was similar and I ended up playing, having started off at a disadvantage. I'm here on my own merits and because of my performances."
