Fernando Torres has had a rollercoaster career so far. The man can be termed an early bloomer, as he gained most of his reputation during the early part of his career. He started gaining media coverage during his time in Atletico Madrid where he served as the team’s captain.
He scored 75 goals for the club before moving to English club, Liverpool, where he further enhanced his reputation. His stellar goal scoring record at Anfield prompted Chelsea to break the bank to purchase him.
At Chelsea, the man never really justified his hefty price tag of $81 million. He left for Milan in 2014 on a 2 year loan after 3 disappointing seasons at Chelsea. Although his form hasn’t remained uniform over the years, he has still managed to win several trophies.
He is Spain’s third highest goal scorer of all time and has helped the country win the UEFA Euro 2008, the 2010 FIFA World Cup, and the UEFA Euro 2012. During his time in Chelsea, he won a Champions League medal, a Europa league medal, and an FA Cup medal.

Torres’s phenomenal talent and boyish charms have helped him accumulate quite a fortune through endorsements alone. He is known to be in a contract deal with companies, Adidas and PepsiCo. Forbes published that the AC Milan front man brought home $3.5 million in the 013/014 season from endorsement deals.
That is certainly a hefty paycheck for someone who hasn’t been firing on all cylinders for a long time. It does speak volumes about the impact he made early in his career.
