Chelsea fans are refusing to get too excited here in the Football Transfer Tavern as Metro report flop Fernando Torres has another suitor.
After being told Atletico Madrid did not think he was worth paying £20 million for – yes, we know £2 million is being generous – now it seems that Ligue 1 side Monaco are sniffing around the £50 million man – and are actually willing to meet his asking price.
We think that Monaco must have borrowed Paris Saint-Germain’s valuation scale if they think Torres is even worth half that figure!
One of our rather savvy punters notes that Chelsea could well lure Radamel Falcao to the club with the promise of cash and Torres going the other way.
Now that James Rodriguez has penned his mega deal for Real Madrid, we wonder if Falcao’s proposed Los Blancos switch is off with the Colombian forward now once again up for grabs.
Torres meanwhile is unwilling to move to any club who will not pay him the same amount per week that Chelsea will.
That fact has the majority of our Blues supporting punters rolling their eyes and willing to club together to buy Torres out of his current deal!
Chelsea fans. Will Torres even be on the move this summer or will he once again persevere with his stuttering Blues career? Let us know your thoughts below.
