It’s that festive time of the year again – and as someone once sang – I don’t want a lot for Christmas. There’s just one thing I need.
Atleti fans have been waiting for Fernando to return ever since he left for Liverpool in 2007. The Calderón will welcome him in the best way possible.
What better Christmas present is there? El Niño back in his home, it’s meant to be.
Niño, come back. Fernando come back.
You would have to be mad to believe that Fernando would light the world on fire if he came back to Atlético. But if there is something that can help Torres it’s Simeone, the man who changed the Atleti squad into warriors and winners. Can Simeone do the same to Fernando Torres?
Many are baffled when they hear the Torres to Atleti rumours. Quite frankly, does he have what it takes to play in a team that aspires to be the best?
Being an Atleti fan is different though, and having our long lost child back in the Calderón is what some of us dream about all the time.
But why? Our centenary hymn explains the reasoning perfectly.
“Aquí me pongo a cantar motivos de un sentimiento que no se puede explicar.”
I’m going to sing about the reasons about a feeling that you just can’t explain.
We want him so bad but we can’t explain a logical reason why.
The only answer is because. Because we love him. Because he loves us. Because he is one of us.
The Atlético president refused to rule out a possible Torres deal in the January window.
“There’s no Torres deal, but that doesn’t mean that there won’t be.”
But after years and years of disappointing the fans, it is difficult to believe Cerezo.
If he comes, it will be difficult for him to play a lot. The logical option would be to ship out Raúl Jiménez on loan to bring in Fernando. If so, it’s hard to see him having much more of an impact than the 23-year-old Mexican.
I want him, Cholo wants him, Cerezo apparently wants him, La Liga and almost every Atlético wants him.
Having your niño come back after seven years… There’s no better Christmas present.
Es un sentimiento que no se puede explicar.
