Villa on Liverpool ace Torres: No chance of Man City move - maybe Barcelona or Chelsea

Barcelona signing David Villa can't see Spain teammate Fernando Torres quitting Liverpool for Manchester City.

Villa scoffed at rumours that Roberto Mancini’s project at Eastlands could be where Torres goes next.

He said: “He isn’t money-focused so he would ­never join Manchester City.

“But sure, Barcelona and Chelsea would be real options for him. He has proven he can score goals in England and Chelsea are the number one team there at the ­moment, so I suppose it’s the option that makes the most sense.

“He has been fully focused on the World Cup but in the back of his mind he knows he needs to be competing for the very highest honours and if Liverpool can’t do it he will have to move.”
