Despite assurances from Liverpool chairman, and Chelsea supporter, Martin Broughton that Liverpool don’t need to sell players – Liverpool are now in debt to the tune of almost £500M after a disastrous period of ownership under Hicks and Gillett.
The reds’ number 9 is believed to be underwhelmed by the replacement of Rafa Benitez by Roy Hodgson.
Torres’ agent said:
‘It is very likely that Fernando Torres will stay in the Premier League, but I cannot say that it will be with Liverpool. We are working on his future but right now you cannot guarantee that he will stay with the English club.’
Both Chelsea and Man City are rumoured to have made offers that the Liverpool board have provisionally accepted.
