Newcastle face Chicago Fire competition for Torres

Newcastle United face competition for Atletico Madrid striker Fernando Torres this summer.

Torres is being linked with Newcastle, where he'd find his former Liverpool manager Rafa Benitez.

But Cadena COPE reports emissaries from Chicago Fire have travelled to the Spanish capital intent on negotiating a deal for Torres.

However, they add that his agents insist that the MLS side are just one of the many clubs interested in the Spaniard.

Torres started his career at Atletico, rising through the youth system and became club captain at the age of 19 — despite the fact current boss Diego Simeone was among their playing staff.
