"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.
