Torres cant imagine him or Ronaldo joining Real Madrid

As Real Madrid’s Florentino Perez revolution begins to really pick up steam, Liverpool striker Fernando Torres has all but ruled himself out of joining the new Galactico dynasty to save any hassle of having to shoot down nagging rumors in the future.

The Spanish international also believes that Manchester United ace Cristiano Ronaldo will not swap Old Trafford for the Santiago Bernabeu, but he did invite Barcelona ’s Lionel Messi to the Premier League.
“For me, Real Madrid are just like any other club, like Barcelona , Milan , Bayern Munich or Inter. Just another big club,” he said in an interview with weekly Spanish magazine Don Balon.
“I just do not see myself playing for Madrid . They do not attract me, especially because of my past with Atletico. And even if I were to return to Spain , I will certainly be going back to Atleti.
“But before that, I would like to try my luck at Serie A to complete my résumé of having played in Europe ’s big three leagues. I would also consider the Bundesliga as they have a very attractive club in Bayern Munich,” he elaborated.
Torres was then asked to compare the two best players in the world today: Ronaldo and Messi.
“Leo would fit perfectly into English football and he would become an even better player,” he offered.
“He can still play the way he does now, but because he won’t be able to pause so much, he would have to take a more vertical line because the style of the game would force him to.
“Ronaldo is different from Messi. He is very impressive down the wings. Certainly in Spain , the games will be much slower and he would be able to show more of his individual qualities.
“But personally, I do not see him playing outside of the Premier League anytime soon, especially since Manchester United are doing so phenomenally well.
“Besides, nowadays, any player would fit in better at Barcelona because of their style of football. But as we all know, this changes from one season to another.”
Having already tamed United recently, Torres and Liverpool will have a chance to square off against Barca in the semi-finals of the Champions League if both teams can successfully negotiate their quarter-final opponents.
