i dont want him to leave. But if he decides to leave i hope he will go outside England. And Barca is a good place to be for him.

Don't think he will leave Liverpool for another English club - I even think he said so himself one time... Barca is probably tempting for Torres as he feels the PL is hard on his body... I think he will remain in red for one more season tho! If the results doesn't improve by then he will leave.
