Would Torres Swap Red To Blue?

Would Torres Swap Red To Blue?

Fernando Torres is a Liverpool legend, but with the grave danger of no Champions League football next season would the Anfield club be forced into selling their prize asset?

The 25-year Spaniard has a contract until 2013, with an option of a further one-year extension, however, would his agent be pressing his client to look for another club should the once mighty Liverpool continue to fall from grace. Lets face it, if Gerrard and Torres are sidelined the team as a whole look pitiful.


News of the World dated 03/01/10 published...

'Fernando Torres will become the most expensive player in the world if he leaves Liverpool in the summer. Chelsea and Manchester City have made the Spanish striker their number one target, but would have to splash out £140m in transfer fees and wages.'

The Sun - 31/12/09 - 'Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini will move for Liverpool trio Fernando Torres, Javier Mascherano and Steven Gerrard if the Reds finish outside the top four in the Premier League this season and are forced to sell their superstars.'

The Mail - 'The billionaire owners of Manchester City are to rock ailing Liverpool by launching an audacious £50m bid for star striker Fernando Torres.'

Torres swaps Red for Blue.

Still say, wait until towards the end of the season. If we are in the CL, and Liverpool are not, then you make the offer. Can't see Torres going anywhere else in the Prem (possible exception of Chelsea) due to the high cost. Abroad, quite possibly.

I think there's a realistic chance of it happening in the summer. I think Liverpool are that much in need of a squad rather than a team that they'll take a step back in order to take two steps forward. £50m would suit both, I mean even Rafa wants it to happen, I say he wants it because otherwise he'd give no indication it might ever happen. If you guys get Torres then a little guy called David Villa and maybe another little guy called David Silva may also join.....then I'd be officially scared.

He's got a huge head! Reminds me of Conan o'Brian and John Mayer.

The yanks might be inclined to accept an offer for him, and TBH I'd much rather help the scousers balance their books than the rags. The warm glow of owed trafford burning is best shared with other like-minded fans don't you think?
13/01/2010 16:02:00
In your dreams boys. Torres knows a flash in the pan club when he see's one and that boy is as much of a scouser now as gerrard and Carra. even if you bid £100m he wouldnt go. go spend your blood money elsewhere.

Blood money?? Where on earth did that comment come from?
