Fernando Torres has attempted to quell any transfer speculation surrounding his future by announcing that he’s staying with Liverpool.
The striker, currently on Confederations Cup duty with Spain, has a contract at Anfield that runs until 2013 with an option for a further one year stay.
He’s rumoured to be a target for Manchester United once they finalise Cristiano Ronaldo’s move to Real Madrid but the 25 year old has dashed the hopes of any potential suitors by saying:
I’m very happy with my contract and wouldn’t leave just to earn a little more somewhere else where I wouldn’t be that happy.
To want any more would be greedy and that is not me. As long as Liverpool want me, I will stay.
A lot of players committed themselves to Liverpool this summer with new contracts and players don’t do that unless they think they can have their ambitions met.
There is a lot of belief at the club and a lot of trust in the manager. I sincerely believe I will win the Premier League and the Champions League here. The winning tradition is very clear at Liverpool. I want to be involved in a little piece of their history.
