FERNANDO Torres has revealed that he would like to play in Italy one day.

“In a few years' time I would like to play in Serie A,” the 25-year-old Spaniard. “I would then have played in the three biggest leagues in European football: Spain, England and Italy.”

Torres, formerly of Atletico Madrid, said he could not see himself playing at Real.

He said: “Real Madrid are not the biggest team in the game. They are a big club but so are Barcelona, Milan, Bayern Munich and Inter. It is not a team that interests me and, because of the time I spent at Atletico Madrid, the opposite could be said. I cannot see myself playing for Real Madrid.”

But for now, the Spaniard's aim is a league title with Liverpool. “I would love to remain at Liverpool for many seasons to come,” said Torres, who is in the early stages of contract negotiations, although nothing is expected to be finalised until the summer.

“I feel at home. I have this season plus another four years left to run on my contract. The club has been brilliant with me and I owe the fans. They took to me as if I was one of their own. They treat me in the same way they do Gerrard or Carragher... it is unbelievable.

“I hope to repay them by giving them a Premier League title. I do not have a buyout clause in my contract, you do not get them in England. Both teams have to reach an agreement before a player can leave his club to sign for another.”
