Torres will be forced to travel with Spain to the Confederations Cup, and that will mean him playing on until the end of June.
Worse still, Liverpool are committed to a preseason trip to Thailand and Singapore less than a month later.
The host countries have inserted clauses in the contract that Torres MUST play.
The Spaniard will get barely a fortnight off, as the first game against Thailand is on July 22.
