Liverpool are believed to have settled personal terms with Spain striker Fernando Torres while Luis Garcia is heading back to his homeland.

Liverpool sources have insisted there is no conflict over wages with the 23-year-old Atletico Madrid star, as had been claimed, and he has verbally accepted around £90,000 a week - which will put him on a par with Jamie Carragher and Xabi Alonso but short of Steven Gerrard´s £120,000-a-week new contract.

Liverpool are so confident that Torres will now complete his signing when he returns from holiday that they have let Luis Garcia join Atletico for around £4million.
