I felt I had to post a few lines regarding the official bid by Chelsea to lure on-fire Torres to Stamford Bridge. The club have come out saying that the Spaniard is not for sale, albeit a sum of £35-40m having reportedly been put on the table by Chelsea. Latest news has it that Torres has asked for the club to consider the offer. I am sincerely hoping Sky News’ source got it completely wrong. Forget worries about not getting any players, if Torres departs, that will have a cataclysmic effect on a club enjoying a stable but delicate period. The sight of Torres alone is encouraging before kick-off and I’m sure his team-mates get that added boost when he’s around.
It has also been said that Torres has a £50m buy-out clause and I’m sure Chelsea will be determined this time round to conclude the transfer. Torres himself needs to come out and dismiss the story. The club have already done their part in stating he’s not for sale. I’m still convinced Torres is Liverpool through-and-through but the latest headlines have got me terribly anxious and in the multi-million transfer scenario, anything is possible.
We don’t need this, we just don’t need this.
