Liverpool striker Fernando Torres says he wants to know what is really happening at the club before committing his future to the Reds.

The Spain frontman says he will seek talks with the board and new Reds coach Roy Hodgson after the World Cup in order to find out exactly what is going on at Anfield.

“I suppose that when the World Cup finishes I will speak to the people at Liverpool and they will explain to me the real situation of how things are at present, the future of the club. And I will talk to the new coach,” he said in an interview with El Mundo Deportivo.

Torres has been linked with a big-money move to the likes of Chelsea, Barcelona and Inter Milan in recent weeks following Liverpool’s failure to qualify for next season’s Champions League and reports that the Merseyside club have debts of around £350million.

For the moment, however, Torres says he is not thinking beyond the World Cup.

“There’s time for that (Liverpool), but I want to finish the World Cup, go on holiday, as I haven’t had a holiday for three years, rest and then there will be time to talk about all of that - the situation isn’t going to change whether we talk soon or later,” he said.

The former Atletico Madrid striker refused to rule out a move away from Anfield, but says nothing will happen until after the World Cup.

“Honestly, teams won’t be able to do anything until the World Cup has finished. The players here prefer to wait - there is time,” he said.
