Fernando Torres

Fernando Torres was and still is one of the most hottest prospects in the world.He had a magnificient World Cup in Germany but unfortunately Spain couldn’t continue their fine form in the tournament which meant that Torres didn’t have the full spectrum of the tournament to showcase his talents.

Courted by top clubs in Europe, namely Manchester United,Inter Milan and AC Milan, the youngster decided to continue playing for Atletico Madrid and has even signed a contract extension that will keep him at Madrid till 2009, but as you and i know..contact almost means nothing these days, so expect Torres to make a move next summer 😉
