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.
