Future no concern for Torres

Striker Fernando Torres is happy to put talk over his Liverpool future on hold until after the World Cup.

Torres' Anfield future has been brought into doubt following his claim that the ailing Reds need to sign "four or five" new players to bounce back from a disappointing season which saw them finish seventh in the Premier League table.

Chelsea have been linked with a £50million move for the Spain striker in recent weeks.

However, Torres insists he is thinking only of the World Cup in South Africa and shaking off a knee injury in time to be fit for Spain's opening game against Switzerland on June 16.

Speaking about the situation at Anfield with the club up for sale, Torres said:"I know the situation, I speak to the chief executive (Christian Purslow) and Rafa (Benitez) every week and I am aware of what is going on.

"I have tried to stay apart from them and re-focus on the national team so when the World Cup ends, we'll see what happens."

Torres joined Liverpool in the summer of 2007 from Atletico Madrid and has since scored 72 goals in 116 appearances despite a number of injury problems.
