Fernando Torres has revealed how he spurned Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal before moving to Anfield.
The Spanish international striker claims he had opportunities to join a host of top English clubs throughout his time with Atletico.

"Offers came in from Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United but I preferred to stay with Atletico at the time," said Torres.

"I'm a much better player now that I have joined Liverpool. With time you learn to move a lot better."

Despite earning nearly 50 caps for his country, Torres has yet to feature on the European stage at club level.

That could all change on Tuesday night if he's selected in the team to face Porto.

"Everyone wants to play in Europe, to be among the greats," he added.
"I did not come here because of money, I came for the challenge and the chance to win things and I believe I can do that with Liverpool.

"The chance to play in the Champions League and with great players is what matters. I want to contribute with my goals."
