Barcelona and Real Madrid have ruled out moving for Chelsea striker Fernando Torres next month.

The Daily Mail says Barcelona and Real Madrid have ruled out a move to rescue Torres from English football.

The two biggest clubs in Spain have been sounded out about Torres' future but have shown no interest in the £50million striker.

Despite similar rumblings at Barcelona about the future of David Villa, coach Pep Guardiola insists he is not for sale and maintains there will not be an opening at the Nou Camp for Chelsea's misfiring front man.

Real coach Jose Mourinho is not short of striking options and Torres' previous career at city rivals Atletico would be a major obstacle to a move to the Bernabeu.
