Atlético confirmed that Adán has signed a two-year contract to be Jan Oblak’s deputy after he spent the past four seasons as Betis’ number one. The 31-year-old is a Madrid native and a close friend of Koke (the two share an agent). His signing almost certainly means Axel Werner will be loaned out this season in order to accrue playing time — newly-promoted Huesca, coached by former Atlético goalkeeper Leo Franco, have been mooted as a possible destination for the young Argentine.
Earlier in the day, Fernando Torres announced a new book and a new club. The Atleti legend will take his talents to Sagan Tosu in the J1 League later this month.
Fernando Torres: "Sagan Tosu were one of the first clubs to show interest in me, and I appreciate their insistence and how they convinced me with their sporting, personal and cultural project."— Dermot Corrigan (@dermotmcorrigan) July 10, 2018
Torres will join longtime international teammate Andrés Iniesta (at Vissel Kobe) in the Japanese league, and the 34-year-old could make his debut on July 22 against Vegalta Sendai. Sagan Tosu are mired in 17th place — 13 points from 15 matches — in the 18-team league.
