Torres: I almost joined AC Milan

Torres was close to joining the Rossoneri before signing for Liverpool in 2007.

“I know that Milan were interested in me and that the clubs talked between them, but never to me,” he said.

“(His former club) Atletico never told me they intended to sell me before ending the negotiations with Milan, but there was talk about me joining them. It’s always nice when the top clubs are interested in you.”
