It looks like our prized asset, Fernando Torres is set to leave Liverpool.
Following our poor season and the departure of boss Rafa Benitez, the Spanish striker has had enough and wants to move on
Manchester City were ready to offer Fernando Torres a huge contract, “and by that I mean the biggest for any footballer anywhere in the world, according to Soccernet. “But Torres said ‘no’, he was not interested.”
It is believed that City were offering Nando £200,000 a week to join them but they were rebuffed by the player who now favours a move to Chelsea, who crucially, are title winners and will be in the Champions League next season.
Torres has become dismayed by recent events at Anfield and having spent the early part of his career at struggling Athletico Madrid, he does not wish to do the same at Liverpool.
So the best we can hope for now is a £70 million fee for our prized asset.
I live in hope that it will be reinvested in our playing squad, but while Hicks and Gillette stay in charge of Liverpool, there is no guarantee that it will be.
It is more likely most of the money we get, if Torres does go, will end up paying off the debt.
Dark days at Anfield.
