The pair are still coming to terms with helping Spain become World Cup winners for the first time on Sunday.

But Torres, who picked up a groin injury in the final, now has to weigh up his options with regards to his club future.

Chelsea have been strongly linked with a move for the 26-year-old striker this summer as Liverpool cannot offer him Champions League football this season.

Torres only discussed his situation with Iniesta after the final, in which the Barcelona star scored the only goal in extra-time.

And Iniesta reckons Torres will be ready to sort out his future after a short break with his family.

"Fernando was fully focused on Spain and we didn't even talk about his future until last night," he told the Daily Express.

"He is going to take a break with his wife and daughter [after attending his sister's wedding this week], speak to Liverpool and take things from there.


"Any club that has him is lucky to have him. David Villa says Torres is the most complete striker in the world and his future will be decided in the next two weeks."

Torres will also have a scan in the next 48 hours to determine the extent of the groin injury he suffered after replacing Villa in extra-time, although the tear to his left adductor is expected to keep him out for up to two months.

Even if Torres chooses against staying at Anfield, the former Atletico Madrid man is set to stay in England.

But Iniesta, 26, insists he is unlikely to join his international team-mate in the Premier League, with the midfield maestro admitting he wants to see out his career with his hometown club.

"It's a league I love to watch, but I never have any intention of leaving Barcelona," he said.

"It's a dream of mine to play at Old Trafford - but as a Barcelona player and nothing else.

"I hope I stay for my whole career."
