It’s not even May, and already Spain is buzzing about with the news that Liverpool’s finest could be making a move back south in the summer. Surely he wouldn’t leave the club at this point, right?
Barcelona are lining up a summer swoop for Liverpool’s star striker Fernando Torres.

If anything, Liverpool should consider the link to be nothing more than paper talk. The Spanish press have a way of twisting stories around, and this looks to be one of those grand stories — especially with Torres on international duty, this link seems too good to be true for Barca.
The only way a move like this could happen would be if Benitez got the axe this summer, and Liverpool was still under the American’s control. At that point you could see a moment of weakness where ownership would move their prized striker for the right price if he wanted out.
What do supporters think about the rumour?
