Atletico Madrid striker Fernando Torres plans to leave the club when his contract expires at the end of the season to seek more game time.
Torres, 34, has started only three La Liga matches this season and made 17 appearances from the bench, scoring two goals.
“I want to take advantage of this opportunity to say this will be my last season at the club,” Torres said at a promotional event on Monday.
“It has not been an easy decision. Looking at the reality, the circumstances, perhaps it’s for the best. I accept that I’m not having much of a role, so perhaps this is the moment to step aside for others.”
