Chelsea fans are looking hopeful here in the Football Transfer Tavern after our landlord informs us of the latest claim from Metro.
The publication seems to think that the Blues could well be set to get rid of Fernando Torres.
The Spanish forward simply seems to be getting worse and was even left out of the Blues squad for their game this weekend as AC Milan joined the list of clubs who are keen on the former Liverpool star.
As one of our punters notes, we are surprised that anyone wants Torres at all but it seems that in order to replace Mario Balotelli, the Serie A side are willing to lower their expectations and sign Torres.
With the arrival of Diego Costa and the return of Didier Drogba, Torres clearly does not have a future at Chelsea under Jose Mourinho and the majority of our regulars are only surprised that he has lasted this long at the club.
If Torres does depart this summer, his exit would also free up some space in the Blues’ squad for another forward to join – and one who can actually put the ball into the back of the net as well!
Chelsea fans. Do you think that Torres is finally going to leave SW6 this summer? Who would you bring in to replace him? Let us know your thoughts below.
