Chelsea Line-Up £30m Player Exchange Deal For Suarez After Giving Up On Rooney

By on August 27, 2013

As we enter the final stages of the summer transfer window, there is plenty of gossip doing the rounds in the newspapers so we’ll keep you up-to-date with the latest transfer rumours. Today, Chelsea line-up a shock player swap deal for Luis Suarez.

After seemingly giving up on their pursuit of Wayne Rooney Chelsea are lining-up a shock player-plus-cash swap deal involving Fernando Torres for Liverpool striker Luis Suarez, according to reports on Tuesday.

Chelsea have been chasing Rooney all summer but any potential deal for the Manchester United’s ace appears unlikely now that the striker has decided against submitting a transfer request to force his exit from Old Trafford.

This snub seems to have led to Jose Mourinho looking at other targets and Sport Direct News claims today that the Blues are now ready to offer Liverpool £30m plus former striker Fernando Torres in exchange for unsettled hitman Suarez.

The Reds have so far resisted any attempts to lure the Uruguayan away from Anfield with Arsenal already seeing two bids rejected after Suarez went public with his desire to leave Merseyside in search of Champions League football. Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has recently claimed that his interest in the player is ‘dead’ and he’s moved on to target other strikers.

However, the 26-year-old remains unsettled at Liverpool and this report suggests that Brendan Rodgers may be tempted by Chelsea’s player-exchange offer as it provides him with a ready-made replacement, as well as a sizeable sum to reinvest in his squad before the window closes.

Rodgers men have also coped extremely well during Suarez’s absence – winning five and drawing one of the six games he’s been banned for so far – so it could give the Northern Irishman confidence that their is life without the controversial striker and persuade him to cash-in rather than keep hold of a disgruntled player.

The idea of Torres returning to Anfield is an intriguing one. After making himself a Kop hero, the Spaniard left under a cloud when he elected to join Chelsea in 2011 but many sections of the Liverpool support still hold him close to their hearts and may welcome him back after a failed stint at Stamford Bridge. Whether the 29-year-old would be willing to go back to Liverpool with his tail between his legs is another question though!

We’re into the final week of the transfer window and it’s promising to be an interesting few days. Stay tuned for all the latest transfer updates and gossip.

    Frankly, although i cant see this happening id personally take the deal. Get rid of suarez and bring back torres, who has achieved what he wanted to and i can see getting back to a lethal player. Do it br you know you want to!!

      Are you broken because your spelling and grammar and all round stupid American opinion which holds no water outside of the good old Yankville suggests it …. Remember who knocked you out of the CL and then went on to win it …. unless you are new to “Soccer” …and have no idea who Chelsea are….

        I know who Chelsea are. I was in the Stamford Bridge area, and had an extra thirty seconds, so I decided to take a close look at ALL of the silverware Chelsea have won over the years. I still had fifteen seconds leftover, when I was done…

    To play with suarez. And at this time we need more goal scoring and torres knows how we need power infront to achieve something

    I wouldn’t think that represents the true value of Suarez. More like £40m + lukaku

    Liverpool have beaten Chelsea even when in poor form recent seasons, for a team of supposed world class players, Chelsea are the biggest under achievers in the premier league….no heart, this is why Torres went from star status to a dud the past 2 years. Take Mata off their hands so he knows how it feels to play in a team with more spirit & guts!!

    The only problem chelsea has is just the striker, go for suarez along with eto & lets clean all this striking mess by believing in both & sell out lukaku,tores & ba.That’s all

    As for me, I don’t think this kind of deal would ever be a possible one again, though! There’s nothing new under the heaven again, but I doubt if this transfer would be. For Torres to go back to club where he had caused them unexpected heartbroken, it’s not adviceable, and it’s not a good swap deal. Something like this could lead to enmity. But I believe till the transfer window closes it won’t work.

    Taking Suares out of d club is not a best decision to take, wht we rely need as a Liverpool committed fan, is dat we should go for striker and leave Suares bcs he’s still a tension to every other club despite he’s still on punishment. So Liverpool need a complete strikers to make the finishing. Pls Suares remain un-thoucheable! We will never walk alone i remain Liverpool for life…

    Suares is to special to play for a club like Liverpool … The man is wasting his career in that club. Liberate him and bring him to Chelsea!
