Fernando Torres plays down reports suggesting that he could sign for Atletico Madrid in the summer.

Chelsea striker Fernando Torres has described rumours that he will rejoin Atletico Madrid during the summer as "unrealistic".

Recent reports have linked the 29-year-old with a return to Atletico, whom he left back in 2007 to sign for Liverpool.

However, having since joined the Blues, Torres has insisted that he still has things to "achieve" at Stamford Bridge.

"I have never hidden the fact that I am very grateful for everything Atletico gave me," he told AS. "But the reality is that I'm at another team and I have three years left on my contract.

"There are still many things for me to achieve at Chelsea before I return home. Right now returning to Atletico is not realistic."

Spanish international Torres cost Chelsea £50m in January 2011.
