Fernando Torres to quit Anfield if Liverpool don’t make Champions League

Posted Monday, December 28, 2009 by IMscouting.com

Fernando Torres’ future at Liverpool is once again being questioned, despite the 2-0 win over Wolves yesterday.

A report in the News of the World this morning claims the Spanish striker will quit Liverpool if Rafa Benitez’s side don’t secure Champions League football at the end of this season.

Liverpool have already turned down a bid from Manchester City believed to be worth £70million and Chelsea have also had an offer rejected for Torres. Both Premier League rivals are believed to be preparing renewed offers for "El Nino."

Chris Bascombe writes in the News of the World: "Torres has consistently committed himself to the Liverpool cause but that is conditional on the club proving they can fulfil his ambitions. The Spaniard has become troubled by the shambolic events on and off the pitch in recent months and is seeking assurances the club will sort themselves out before the start of next season."

Bascombe adds: "Torres left his boyhood team Atletico Madrid because they could not match his Champions League and trophy- winning dreams. Liverpool's alarming slump is leading him to a similar situation where his heart is at his current club but he may be forced to move on. Failure to finish in the top four and the continued presence of the current hierarchy would mean only blind faith could keep Torres at Anfield. He recently signed a lucrative new deal but money is not his motivation."

The Sunday paper also speculates over the future of Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard . Real Madrid, Barcelona and Inter Milan are all following events closely at Anfield in the hope of luring the midfielder.
