Torres to get new Contract

FERNANDO TORRES is ready to sign a new £22million deal with Liverpool.

The Spanish striker’s advisors have told the club’s American owners that the player will ignore overtures from across Europe to agree new terms this summer.

That would see the wages of the 24-year-old leap by £20,000 a week to £90,000 — with an extra year added to his existing deal.

Torres signed a bumper six-year deal when he joined from Atletico Madrid for £23m in 2007.

Although he’s struggled with injury this season, he’s become one of the most wanted strikers in the world and Manchester City are among those considering a massive bid.

But Torres has no intention of quitting Anfield, regardless of the boardroom and managerial uncertainty. Earlier this week, he rubbished claims he’d leave the club unless Rafa Benitez stayed as manager.

Talks have been on the back-burner while the club resolves Benitez’s situation but rewarding Torres is a top priority at the end of the current campaign.
