On Monday, Fernando Torres confirmed what many had expected. The 34-year-old, who has seen a significant decrease in his game time this season, will leave Atletico Madrid at the end of the season.

Torres will undoubtedly be given an emotional farewell. He joined the club at 10-years-old, captained them at 19 and scored close to 100 goals before departing for Liverpool.

Often, when a player returns to a club, there is something that lures them back, a special bond between player and club. Torres was a club icon even before he came back in 2015 after a difficult four years at Chelsea and a spell with Milan in Italy. 

That is certainly no different with the five strikers included in this list.
