The Spaniard was inclined to move into the Premier League and so he was offered a deal by Liverpool FC. He signed for Liverpool in the year 2007 on a transfer fee of around £25million and a six-year contract. The decision of moving to Liverpool ended up being too good for Torres and he scored a lot of goals in the very first season winning the hearts of Liverpool fans.
Everything was going fine but there was still one problem. Torres did not win anything in his 4 years at Liverpool. In 2010 Torres won the World Cup for Spain which again landed all the attention towards him again. It was the perfect time to make a transfer request.
3: Chelsea (2011-2014)
Torres knew if he wants to win then he needs to move to a different club as it was not working out in terms of winning titles. Soon after sending a transfer request, he got an offer from Chelsea.

4: AC Milan (2014-2015)
The move to AC Milan was something that was not very planned for Torres as he did not play for a long time for them. After a very short time, he sent in a request to join his old team Atletico Madrid back. He made his debut in Serie A on 20th September 2014. The player knew it was not the place for him and so he wanted a move back to his old club where it all started.

At last, Torres decided that it was over and he hang his shoes on 23rd August 2019. The best part about his retirement match is that it was against the team that had two of his old best friends Iniesta and David Villa. It was magical yet heartbreaking for Torres fans to see him retire.
