Liverpool’s talismatic striker Fernando Torres looks set to stay at the club for next season at least following comments by his agent Louis Peton.
Peton told Spanish station Punto Radio: “For the moment I can assure fans that Fernando will continue at Liverpool next season.
“Everything is down to Liverpool’s attitude but for the time being Fernando is happy at the club and has a good contract.
“Liverpool have not spoken to us about his future, so he is just concentrating on playing at the World Cup.”
Constant rumours of Torres being sold to Chelsea or Man City are completely wide of the mark as Liverpool’s cult hero is in no mood to leave Anfield anytime soon.
Instead Torres has told Spanish compatriot Pepe Reina that he wants to get fully fit, help Spain challenge for the World Cup in South Africa and then help Liverpool challenge for the Premiership title next season.
The fact that Rafa Benitez has money to spend in the summer transfer window is also something Torres has welcomed as he has decried the recent inactivity of LFC in the transfer market. He declared earlier in the year that Liverpool needed four or five new signings to compete with the Chelsea’s and Man Utd’s of this world.
