33-year-old attacker linked with a shock move to Newcastle United

Mata relished working under Benitez during his time at Chelsea and, with fond memories of the ex-Blues boss, explained that he is looking forward to seeing him again at Old Trafford at the weekend. But Torres was named in the Premier League PFA Team of the Year in his first two seasons in England and will be remembered as one of the best number nine's in the club's history.

Torres enjoyed a hugely impressive spell in the Premier League with Liverpool, scoring 81 goals, before a disappointing move to Chelsea derailed his career somewhat.

According to The Daily Star, Newcastle United are aiming to sign Everton's Ross Barkley in the January transfer window. Torres wants to see as much action as possible before hanging up his boots, and is ready to leave Spain in order to make that happen.

And his camp have also touched base with ex-boss Benitez and Southampton manager Mauricio Pellegrino. The World Cup victor is now little more than a squad rotation player at his boyhood club of Atletico Madrid and reports suggest that he desires a return to England. Torres is no longer an aggressive goal getter, but he would add attacking experience and intelligence to a meandering team.

Lebanon's Maronite patriarch makes historic Saudi visit
Hariri explained that his resignation was not officially accepted in Lebanon because it was announced from Riyadh. But later in the interview, he plotted a new twist: He said he may be tempted to stay in power after all.

Any club wanting to sign Torres would have to pay part of his salary which, annually, is around £2m.

If Newcastle were to negotiate a loan for Torres, the striker would be reunited with Rafa Benitez, who brought him to Liverpool in 2007 and is reportedly quite keen to work with him again.

Look at Fernando Torres' goalscoring record since he left Liverpool for Chelsea in 2011, and the pattern which emerges is one of a striker in steady decline.
