However, the defender says he is not concerned about how his future plans, as he focuses on representing his country at the Euros.
‘I have a contract at Villarreal, I just won the first title for the club, we have qualified for the Champions League and it is something that excites me a lot,’ Torres told Goal.

Spain manager Luis Enrique made the surprise decision to leave Sergio Ramos out of his Euro 2020 squad.
‘I spoke with him several times. Both he and the coach have explained the decision,’ Torres said of the decision to leave Ramos out of Spain squad.
‘Sergio has spent a lot of the season injured, unfortunately. I was the first one who wanted to see him here because I appreciate him a lot.
‘We are the ones who are here, we are the ones who have to take this forward.
‘I’ve got on well with Sergio from the first day I came to the national team, for me he has always been a benchmark and now that he has to decide where his future is, I wish him the best and that the decision he makes is the best for him and for his family.’
