Fernando Torres’s future at Anfield looks in doubt after his agent admitted that it is more than likely that the Spaniard will be seeking pastures new. The Liverpool front man who has endured a torrid World Cup on a personal level during Spain’s quest to the last four has been the subject of speculation for the past six months due to his clubs crippling debts.

As Roy Hodgson marked his arrival as the Merseyside’s new manager this week it seemed as if some of the doom and gloom that has harrowed the club for the past ten months was beginning to shift as the clubs loyal faithful begin to grasp at a new dawn under the former Inter Milan coach. Torres himself publically stated that he was delighted with the appointment and announced he will be seeking a chat with his new boss after the World Cup. However his agent Jose Antonio Martin has thrown a spanner into the works by suggesting that his client may be on the move to another Premier League outfit.

“It is very likely that Fernando Torres will stay in the Premier League, but I cannot say that it will be with Liverpool.” said Martin.

“We are working on his future but right now you cannot guarantee that he will stay with the English club.”

Martin also went onto to say that there is no chance of the 26 year old reuniting with his international striker partner David Villa at the Nou Camp. Villa signed for Barcelona prior to the finals in South Africa from Valencia for just over £27million and has been in scintillating form for his country thus far unlike his team mate who has failed to find the net as well as offering little influence during his playing time.

Chelsea and Manchester City have been heavily linked with big money moves for the former Atletico Madrid man and are the only two premier league club who could realistically afford his transfer fee. Liverpool’s chairman Martin Broughton revealed during Hodgson’s inaugural media conference last week  that Torres would not be sold along with club captain Steven Gerrard. However with the clubs debts in such a catastrophic state it will be interesting to see what the owners stance will be if a huge offer is indeed to arrive from one of their rivals.

    Selling to another Premiership side would lower our chances to regain a top four spot, let alone winning the league. Hence a transfer to the same league should cost 100m plus 20m for every season we fail to qualify for the Champions League. Good offer, eh!

    If Torres wants to move, let him, LFC will continue without him. However, Hodgson’s arrival won’t convince him that the future’s bright at Anfield – quite the opposite. Mid table is Roy’s stock in trade – well done Purslow.

    Yeah, Brush. Players may even want to leave simply for the negativity some fellow Reds spread all over the web, but don’t let anything get into your way and continue painting a bleak picture.

    More negative bias …
    The club Do Not need to sell and will not be selling any big players this summer … unless they request to go !

    No CL or recent trophies is the major factor, but most forums are too stuck in there own negative beliefs, it has to be about money and it has to be about the owners … forum fools !

    The sooner forums are made to pay for there slanderous words the better in my view as the forums have played a major part in forming the unrest at LFC … always negative ….
