Mancini's Response To Torres Transfer Speculation

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini responds to transfer speculation linking his club with Liverpool striker Fernando Torres.

Rumours suggest City may offer Liverpool £60 million in the summer for the Spanish international. Would / could the cash-strapped Scousers afford to say no. I wonder?

Direct race between yourselves, Real Madrid and Barcelona for me. Maybe Barca would offer you a gentlemen's agreement in which they go for Torres and they offer you Ibrahimovic at a cut price. Torres playing for Barcelona is dreamy, as is the thought of Ibrahimovic in the Premiership!

Torres to Barca? Bull *****e. They can't afford him. Real Madrid? Who would they need him after spending 200 million on forwards last season? The only option for Torres if he wants to move is Citeh. We lot will not pay 60 million for a players, so he's all yours! But he's got a dodgy knee, so 60 million is a bit too much, I would say.

Liverpool's finanical plight is dire and if Benitez goes this summer, the gap of instability that we know all too well about at Manchester City created by his departure will make it easier for The Blues to make an offer that will be hard to turn down.

He'd never play for Real because of his Athletico connections, he's said as much himself. A lot depends on what happens this summer, will Liverpool get new owners? Will Benitez stay or go? If I had to bet on it i'd say he'll still be a Liverpool player next season.

This is not a diss at City but ever big money player you guys have signed was having trouble with thier current club and wanted out, this is not the case with Torres. Not exactly sure what City has to offer that he is already not getting at Liverpool. The lad does not strike me as someone that puts money ahead of loyalty and always talks about his love for Liverpool and its fans. Plus Liverpool has to look at the situation they would be in if they did sell up, such as, what would Gerrard do and think? How much would new owners pay with such an asset gone? And so on.

Klutch, your point about Torres not going after money is particularly significant. He actually took a paycut to play for Liverpool in his first year. But nobody knows what a 200k a week offer might do to him, would they? Especially if they can assure him of CL footy. But beware of the dodgy knee!
