There are interested faces in the Football Transfer Tavern, as our punters digest the latest claim from The Sun, who note that Chelsea’s Fernando Torres is being lined up for a shock swoop to his former club.
Atletico Madrid are keen on bringing the Spanish forward back to the club where it all began and now it seems that a swap deal plus cash could well be on the cards.
Our punters note that Chelsea are desperate for a forward and it just so happens that one of the players on their wishlist is Diego Costa, who of course currently plies his trade at the Vicente Calderon.
As our landlord points out, Chelsea could well offer a swap deal involving Torres and of course a substantial amount of cash.
Torres is certainly not the player he once was, and a straight deal would be laughably out of the question. However, our Blues fans think it would be far better than allowing Thibaut Courtois to stay at the Spanish side.
It is a must for the Blues to land a forward this summer, and even if they fail to land Costa, someone will be coming in, meaning the likes of Torres may be on their way out regardless.
Should Torres jump at the chance to make an emotional return to Atletico? Surely you’re fed up with him now Chelsea fans. Let us know your thoughts below.
