Liverpool striker Fernando Torres has emphatically quashed rumours of a summer switch away from Anfield after revealing he loves the Reds too much to leave – and has no intention to do so. “I would love to remain at Liverpool for many season to come,” he said. “I feel at home here. I still have this season plus another four years left to run on my contract. “The club has been brilliant with me and I owe the fans a lot. They took to me as if I was one of their own. They treat me in the same way they do Gerrard or Carragher – it is unbelievable. "I hope to repay their warmth by giving them a Premier League title because it has been a long time since the club last won the league.” And the Spanish star, who saw his team crash out of the Champions League quarter-finals to Chelsea after an epic battle 4-4 second-leg draw on Tuesday, insists he would never play for La Liga giants Real Madrid. “It is not a team that interests me and, because of the time I spent at Atletico Madrid, the opposite could be said," he added. "I just cannot see myself playing for Real Madrid. They are not the biggest team in the game. They are a big club but so are Barcelona, AC Milan, Bayern Munich and Inter Milan.” And he believes that World Player of the Year Cristiano Ronaldo will not leave Manchester United to join the Bernabeu giants this summer either. “I cannot see Cristiano Ronaldo playing outside the Premier League for a while to come," he said. "You have to take into account how well Manchester United are playing.” LIVERPOOL FANS!
