Fernando Torres seeks move from Liverpool to develop further as a player - Guillem Balague

Liverpool striker Fernando Torres wants to leave the club because he feels that he can develop further as a player at a different club, according to journalist Guillem Balague.

Torres rejected interest from both Chelsea and Manchester City in the summer to stay with the club because of the loyalty he felt towards the club and its fans.

The Spanish World Cup winner shocked his employers this week by handing in a transfer request after Chelsea lodged an offer for the striker’s services.
