Rafael Benitez insists Fernando Torres is not for sale at any price after the Liverpool manager confirmed he received offers from rival Premier League clubs for the Spain striker during the close-season.
Torres emphasised his value to Liverpool as he took his goal tally for the season to eight in seven games with a hat-trick in Saturday’s 6-1 win over Hull at Anfield.
Benitez has warned any potential suitors they would be wasting their time trying to lure Torres away from Anfield.
“How much is he worth? “Well at least €70 million, you would say,” Benitez said.
“I’m not saying he’s the best in the world because he is young and can get better, but of course he is one of the best, and he can still improve if he wants to.
“This year we had some agents acting for other English clubs who were coming to us asking about the price of Torres, with big, big figures, but we said that he’s not for sale.
“I would say at this moment in time he is not for sale at any price.”
