Lucas Torreira is on loan with Atletico Madrid this season.

It’s devastating to hear this news, we can take some solace in the fact that Torreira was at least allowed to return home to be with his family before his mother’s passing.

Family is much more important than football, hopefully Torreira is allowed as much time as he needs before having to return to action.
