Torres was plucked from Spanish side, Atletico Madrid in 2007 for a fee of £20m. This move had Spanish connections all over as Rafa Benitez; the manager at that time was Spanish. Torres scored 20 goals in his first season and was an immediate success. He became the fastest foreign player to score 50 goals for the club. He left in 2011 to join Chelsea in a £50m and never truly regained his form he showed at Liverpool.
