Rosell sounding out Fernando Torres

Madrid sports tabloid As claimed last week that Barcelona presidential candidate Sandro Rosell has been in contact with Liverpool forward and Spanish international Fernando Torres (25) to sound him out on a possible transfer at the end of the current season.

The relationship between Torres and Liverpool manager Rafael Benítez wouldn't be very good and the striker would therefore be considering to leave the English Premier league club next summer. Torres reportedly prefers to return to Spain and Barcelona could then been his first option.

Spanish radio station Cadena Ser confirmed that Rosell is working on both the transfers of Torres and Arsenal midfielder Cesc (read more here). The talks with Torres would be very advanced and the Spanish striker could sign for Barcelona if Rosell is elected as new president of the club next year.

  1. Where will he play? Both him and Zlatan cannot play on the left. You can play with both of them up front and Messi behind them, but don't think Guardiola wants to change his system.

  2. I don't think it's possible to play Zlatan and Torres in a 4-3-3 system together... Torres is a great player though!

  3. rosell sounds more and more like perez :(

  4. i prefer us signing david villa
    david villa can play on the left
    left forward role like ronnie and henry

  5. I would hope that the next president would at least discuss getting the players the manager wants before signing them and avoid a problem.

  6. i think this transfer is the best thing both for barca and torres, because ibra is obviously not performing well, and torres is stuck with struggling liverpool...
