El Nino wants Rafa to buy Spanish this summer!
Fernando Torres has urged the powers that be at Liverpool to draft in creative, attacking talent – or, to be more specific, the likes of his fellow Spain stars David Villa, David Silva and Juan Mata.
The Valencia trio are among the Primera Division’s most exciting players, and Torres believes the Reds need to buy someone of that ilk if they wish to catch Manchester United next season.

Clearly Fernando Torres is keen to see some of more of his fellow countrymen at the club, this may well be even more the case if Xabi Alonso and Alvaro Arbeloa do leave Liverpool. Valencia are a club in a financial pickle and if Rafa has the cash then he would do well to do his shopping at the Mestalla where he of course was a very successful boss.
I think we all know the brilliance of the pair Silva and Villa but less may be known about Juan Mata is an attacker who’s star is well and truly on the rise. Similar in stature to David Silva, i.e. he’s tiny, the fleet footed 21 year old is more comfortable as the second striker but can play out wide also. The former Real Madrid youth player has became more and more crucial to Valencia’s failed attempt to seal a Champions League spot last term but was rewarded with his first Spanish cap in March and was named in the recent Confederations Cup squad.
Villa/Silva/Mata to Liverpool: Rafa will try his best to snap up at least one of this trio!
