After a successful career in Europe where he played for the likes of Atletico Madrid, Liverpool and Chelsea, Torres has kicked off a new chapter in his career by moving to Asia.
The 34-year-old was unveiled at a press conference on Tuesday, July 10 where he started that he had offers from other continents.
"I had offers from France, Germany, other clubs in Spain,' he said, 'but I did not want to join another European club, as I had the best end possible here with my team (Atletico)," Torres said.
"I will have a good friend in the league too with Andres. It is an exciting challenge for both of us."
Torres's transfer will give Japanese football fans a further boost to energise the domestic league, after Barcelona legend Andres Iniesta signed with Vissel Kobe.
