"I look forward to talking with Mourinho and to know what plans he has for me," Torres, who is with the Spain squad at the Confederations Cup, told Onda Cero. "The first thing I am aware of is he will expect much more from me, I expect more from me. Now I have pressure Mourinho adds and that's a challenge for a player."

"There is a personal relationship, but nothing more than that. My head is now in the Confederations Cup, immediately after that Chelsea.
