Liverpool could face a fight to hold on to Spanish International Fernando Torres in the January, with reports that Manchester City sent a fax on the final day of the summer transfer window enquiring about the Spaniard, according to The Telegraph.
Since the takeover at the Eastlands Stadium by the ADUG, City have been linked with a host of Europe’s top stars, with Cesc Fabregas of Arsenal and Argentine striker Sergio Aguero amongst the names along with Torres.
It is highly unlikely that the fax received any attention whatsoever when it arrived at Anfield, with Reds boss Rafa Benitez in no way ready to sell the forward, who only joined the Merseyside club from Atletico Madrid last summer.
However, with Liverpool’s American co-owners having to renegotiate their loan structure in January, which is reportedly going to cause some financial concern. Liverpool might not be able to resist the sort of figure that the new regime at City could offer for their top-scorer in the Premier League last season.
