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.
