THE BIGGER PICTURE: Torres moved to England when joining Liverpool from Atletico Madrid in the summer of 2007. He hit 81 goals through 142 appearances for the Reds, before going on to endure a frustrating spell at Chelsea that saw him find the target just 45 times in 172 outings for the Blues – although he did become a World Cup winner in that time.

WHAT’S NEXT? Torres earned 110 caps for Spain over the course of his career, with many of those picked up alongside David Villa, and helped La Roja to a World Cup title in 2010 that was sandwiched between European Championship triumphs from 2008 and 2012.
