Fernando Torres has an offer to become the highest-paid player in world football, his agent José Antonio Martín has said.

The striker is currently on loan at Atlético Madrid from Milan until the end of the season and Martín has called on the Atlético coach, Diego Simeone, to make his position on Torres clear.

“Fernando and Simeone should sit down and talk about it,” he told the Sun.

“The fans of Madrid don’t want Torres to be told no continually. He has an offer that would make him the best-paid in the world. There are nuances. It all depends upon the will of the club.”

Torres has scored only two goals in 16 appearances this season, but Martín believes Atlético fans want the player who began his career at the club to sign a permanent contract.

“The feeling I get is this is something that must be resolved, not between [the club president, Miguel Ángel] Gil Marín or [the technical director] Andrea Berta, but rather between Simeone and Torres, who are friends.

“He must either tell [Torres] ‘I am counting on you’ or ‘I am not counting on you’. The fans want his contract renewed and it is something that can’t be denied.”
