June 19, 2010 - Pochefstroom, South Africa - epa02210987 Spain's national soccer team player Fernando Torres looks on during a press conference at Potchefstroom, South Africa, 19 June 2010. Spain will play their second game against Honduras on 21 June.

From the moment Sandro Rosell was elected, Fernando Torres became the primary transfer target for FC Barcelona ahead of Cesc Fabregas. This doesn't mean the club is not interested in securing the signature of Fabregas. It is rumoured that Rosell is having a great friendship with Torres and he can use recent turmoil in Liverpool to bring the former Athletico Madrid striker to Camp Nou. Many Barca fans have questioned the reasoning behind going for Torres as we have both Villa and Ibrahimovic in the team. But there is a growing belief that Ibrahimovic may make a move away from Camp Nou before the transfer market closes. But still signing Torres could have it's pros and cons.

Barca's usual playing style has a lone striker upfront and two wingers flanking him. In that background signing Torres could be a huge gamble. But yesterday's Spain vs Honduras clash showed that David Vill is very much comfortable in playing on the left as he is on the centre. This could be the idea the management will be looking to follow. Or even better we may follow a formation adapted by Diego Armando with two strikers ahead of Lionel Messi. BUt whatever is the plans of the Barca management, Liverpool has for now stamped a value of 50 million for their star striker. That should keep Rosell and his boys off for the time being. But we have to wait and watch to see what happens next.
