Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez has revealed the Anfield club has rejected moves from rivals to lure away star striker Fernando Torres.

Benitez has warned potential suitors the Spanish international is not for sale despite Real Madrid, Manchester United, Chelsea and Manchester City being linked with a possible £60million bid.

"We have had some very big offers for some of our key players this summer - and that includes Fernando Torres," Benitez told the Sunday Mirror. "Clubs wanted Fernando and we were contacted by agents working for those clubs. But we always knew that when a bid came in that we would say no."

He added: "The main thing was that Torres wanted to stay here. People knew the player wanted to stay, but it did not stop clubs trying."
