Torreira’s father talked about his son’s transfer this summer in an interview with Libertad Digital.
Torreira’s father, Ricardo, said: “It feels good to complete the transfer, but the process is actually not easy, because the negotiating parties are two big clubs. This month is very complicated because the transfer has never been finalized. But now he finally has a chance to show his strength again."
"Torella has done his best to play for Arsenal, and of course he may be back there."
"Torella did not take the initiative to sit on the bench. This is the arrangement of the coach. For a 24-year-old player who is well-known in Uruguay and the world, it is necessary to participate in the game. He did not have a chance to play at Arsenal. But we promise that if our contract with Atletico Madrid expires and Arsenal has a coach who is willing to let him play, he will continue to fight for Arsenal."
"Atletico does not have a buyout clause. This is a fact. This is how it works. I support Torreira very much. If he wants to play for Atletico, he will pay all for Atletico. In Spain, he will be familiar with language and lifestyle. I feel more comfortable with the custom, which is why he gave up a more generous offer and chose here."
