Fernando Torres will wear the number nine shirt for J League side Sagan Tosu

Former Spain striker Fernando Torres has announced he is joining Japanese side Sagan Tosu.

Fernando Torres, everybody's favourite floppy-haired blonde striker from the late noughties, is now 34-years-old.

Sagan Tosu has been in Japan's top flight J.League since 2012.

Torres said goodbye to Atletico in style, bagging two goals in his final appearance for the Rojiblancos, a league win over Eibar.

Both Melbourne Victory and Sydney FC had been linked to a potential move, with the Sky Blues recently pocketing around $2 million in the transfers of both Bobo and Adrian Mierzejewski.

"We have had offers from every continent".

Both players might be fighting for different objectives, as Iniesta's new team are now in sixth place, while Torres' club are 17th out of 18.

"I wanted a new challenge in a completely different place".

"I think that Japan and the Japanese league is going to be a great experience".

"Sagan Tosu were one of the first clubs to show an interest in me".

But he has chose to follow his former Spain team-mate Andres Iniesta, who has joined Vissel Kobe, to Japan after confirming he received a multitude of offers.

The Euros and World Cup victor will again wear the No.9 shirt during his new adventure and will be looking to add to his excellent career goals tally.

Torres, who spent the bulk of his career with boyhood club Atletico across two spells, has also played for Liverpool, Chelsea and AC Milan, and won the World Cup and two European Championships with Spain.
