The Daily Mail have seriously alarmed some of our Chelsea fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern, after claiming that Fernando Torres may have a future at Chelsea.
This comes only a day after it was revealed the Blues would have to spend around £10 million to get the misfiring Spanish forward off their books.
Now, Jose Mourinho has not only claimed that the player has a future at the club, but the ex-Liverpool star has been included in promotional shots for the club’s new jersey for next season.
Mourinho claimed that despite the poor performances from the £50 million man, Chelsea could keep him. The Special One noted: “Does he have a future? Yes, he has.
“He is under contract, he’s a good professional. He works hard for the team, he brings positive things to the team.
“Obviously, we want him to score more goals. Obviously, he wants to score more goals. It’s not just me that wants.”
This is despite claims in the media that Torres has been a disruptive and solitary figure since the January departure of Juan Mata to Manchester United, who was of course one of the player’s closest allies at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea fans. Do you think you can put up with watching Torres for another season? Is it simply time for the Spaniard to accept that he has to move on? Let us know your thoughts below.
