Fernando Torres is a Spanish former professional soccer (football) player and team manager who has a net worth of $90 million. Fernando Torres was once one of the highest paid soccer players in the world and regarded as one of the sport's best strikers.

Early Life

Fernando José Torres Sanz was born on March 20, 1984, in Fuenlabrada, Spain, where he joined soccer team Parque 84 at the age of just five years old. His grandfather was an Atlético Madrid supporter, and Fernando followed his love for the club.

At the age of 10, he moved on up to an 11-side team, Rayo 13.
