Torres has been named in Spain’s 24-man squad for Euro 2020, making the cut ahead of Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos.
Despite experiencing such a rapid rise in recent years, the Villarreal academy graduate has played down talk of making a big-money move.
“For now, I only think as a player dressed in yellow. I see my life linked to this club. For now, I have a contract here [until June 2024] and I do not see beyond this final or what may come this summer,” he admitted.
“God willing, I can be in the Euros. I only want the first title for my club, for my people, and then to represent Spain in a tournament as big as this.”
