Atletico call Torres meeting

By Francisco Acedo - Created on 24 Jul 2006



Atletico Madrid are to hold a press conference on Tuesday concerning the future of striker Fernando Torres.


Speculation around the 22-year-old has been rife for some time, but intensified still further following the forward's impressive displays for Spain at the World Cup.


With Ruud van Nistelrooy's departure from Manchester United still seemingly imminent, Torres has persistently been touted as a replacement at Old Trafford.


Atletico have constantly refuted the rumours and Sir Alex Ferguson's comments that he is concentrating on bolstering the midfield seem to bear out those denials.


Ironically, the situation bears a close resemblance to that of Portuguese winger Cristiano Ronaldo, whom The Red Devils have continually insisted is staying.


A team with both the talented prospect and precocious trickster in would certainly prove a fearful force, but United fans will have to wait to see if they get their hands on Torres.
