Liverpool have no intention of selling Fernando Torres. Despite the press wanting Torres to join Chelsea, Roy Hodgson has insisted the striker isn't for sale and is confident of keeping him after chatting with him. "I have met with Fernando. I found him to be a very pleasant man and we had a nice conversation," said the boss. "As far as we are concerned he is a Liverpool player and we want him to remain a Liverpool player. He is not for sale and we don't welcome any offers for him. "We want to keep him. My conversation with him was only short because I had to leave to come to the training camp in Switzerland. We spoke about football, the World Cup, his injury, and I told him how much I am looking forward to working with him. "Christian Purslow was also at the meeting and chatted to Fernando for a lot longer after I left but my chat with him was only about football matters."
