There are groans and orders of tequila from Chelsea fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern after the latest claim from the The Sun and it can only be about one man – Fernando Torres.
The Blues forward is digging his heels in this summer and despite offers from other clubs and indeed a gentle push from Jose Mourinho, the forward will not leave Stamford Bridge unless the Blues pay up his contract.
That will cost them nearly £17 million with two years left on the deal at present.
Torres has been a complete and utter disaster for the Blues and we think that Chelsea should just cut their losses and offer the Spaniard the money that he is demanding and then bring in another forward to help with their title challenge.
Given Chelsea’s need to get rid of a foreign player, allowing Torres to cut his losses would be ideal and would even allow another player to join.
Chelsea fans. Are you sick to death of seeing Torres’ name in the paper linked with yet another failed attempt at goal? Should you just pay the money and run? Let us know your thoughts below.
