Fernando Torres has eight offers on the table including one which would make him the highest-paid player in world football, according to his agent.
Jose Antonio Martin ‘Peton’ claims the former Liverpool and Chelsea striker has offers from all around the world, including one in China.
He is currently with Atletico Madrid on loan from AC Milan, and Torres’representative says his future will be discussed in the near future.
“Fernando and [Diego] Simeone should sit down and talk about it,” he is quoted by the Sun as saying.
“The fans of Madrid don’t want Torres to be told no continually.
“He has an offer that would make him the best-paid in the world. There are nuances. It all depends upon the will of the club.
“The feeling I get is this is something that must be resolved, not between [club chief Miguel Angel] Gil Marin or [technical director] Andrea Berta, but rather between Simeone and Torres, who are friends.
“He must either tell him [Torres], ‘I am counting on you or I am not counting on you.’
“The fans want his contract renewed and it is something that can’t be denied.”
