Fernando Torres Reportedly Eyeing Premier League Return

  • Fernando Torres Set For Premier League Return?

Former Liverpool and Chelsea star Fernando Torres could be set for a stunning return to the Premier League, as well as an unlikely reunion with Rafa Benitez, as Newcastle United are reportedly considering a move for the striker, according to the Newcastle Chronicle.

Newcastle United and Southampton, both with Spanish-speaking managers, have shown an interest in signing the player in the past.

Mata relished working under Benitez during his time at Chelsea and, with fond memories of the ex-Blues boss, explained that he is looking forward to seeing him again at Old Trafford at the weekend. The World Cup victor is now little more than a squad rotation player at his boyhood club of Atletico Madrid and reports suggest that he desires a return to England. He went onto play over 200 games for them in his first spell there, scoring 82 goals.

He is however keen to play as much as possible between now and the end of the season and may still feel that he has what it takes to compete in the Premier League.

Torres endured a torrid time in England's top tier at Chelsea following his very big £50m move from Liverpool. It was the now Newcastle boss Rafa Benitez who brought Torres to England.

While certainly no longer a 20 goal a season striker, Torres has been enjoying his football a lot more over the past two seasons, since returning to Atleti. He was loaned out to Milan for the 2014/15 season but he struggled in Italy so moved back on loan to Atletico Madrid for the remainder of that season and then the season after.
