Chelsea

Duo firmly in Chelsea’s plans this summer

torres.jpgMetro have a fascinating claim for us here in the Football Transfer  Tavern as it is claimed that Juan Mata and Fernando Torres both have a place at Stamford Bridge going into the new season.

Both players had been linked with moves away from Chelsea after the arrival of the Special One and given the arrival Andre Schurrle and also Marco van Ginkel, Mata was reportedly in the firing line regarding his starting place.

The issues with Torres are rather more explainable and as we all know the forward has been misfiring somewhat however it seems that Mourinho is ready to place his faith in the forward and sell Demba Ba instead.

As we all know, Romelu Lukaku has been bought back to the club in an attempt to mould him into the new Didier Drogba and now it seems that Torres will benefit from the Jose effect too.

Both players received a personal phone call from the manager himself who noted that not only are they both staying at the club; they are firmly in his plans to make Chelsea back to one of the biggest clubs in the world again and have the chance to be as special as he is.

Was it madness to ever contemplate that Mata would leave this summer? Will Torres improve again this term? Let us know your thoughts below.
