The 25-year-old, who is close to 50 goals in almost two seasons with Liverpool, still has four years left on his contract but the lure of Serie A could prove to be an important catalyst in the coming seasons. He said: "In a few years' time I would like to play in Serie A.

"Real Madrid are not the biggest team in the game. They are a big club but so are Barcelona, AC Milan, Bayern Munich and Inter Milan," he said. "It is not a team that interests me and, because of the time I spent at Atletico Madrid, the opposite could be said. I just cannot see myself playing for Real Madrid." Despite his love of the continent, Torres is in the early stages of negotiations over a contract extension and a new deal could be concluded in the close-season. "I would love to remain at Liverpool for many seasons to come. I feel at home here. I still have this season plus another four years left to run on my contract." "The club has been brilliant with me and I owe the fans a lot. They took to me as if I was one of their own. They treat me in the same way they do Gerrard or Carragher, it is unbelievable. "I hope to repay their warmth by giving them a Premier League title because it has been a long time since the club last won the league. "I do not have a buy-out clause in my contract, you do not get them in England. Both teams have to reach an agreement before a player can leave his club to sign for another."
