Chelsea Transfer Latest: Fernando Torres ON, David Luiz OFF

transfer news

Chelsea have made an official bid of £35 million for Fernando Torres in a deal that will in no doubt, heat up in the next few days as the deadline for the January transfer window 2011 approaches. The opening of the cheque book by Roman Abramovich seems to have been finally confirmed after Chelsea made this mega bid early on Friday. Fernando Torres has been one player of great interest to Carlo Ancelotti ever since he took over at Stamford Bridge. Chelsea had a £50 million bid rejected in the summer. Chelsea looked to have put an end to that transfer for some time, but they have once again reignited their interest in Torres after David Luiz’s reported move to Stamford Bridge fell through.

Benfica have confirmed that they have failed to come to terms with Chelsea and the reported £26 million move for David Luiz is off. Chelsea seem to have reacted to the news very quickly after they shifted their attention from signing a defender to going for a centre forward. I said yesterday that signing a defender will not change Chelsea’s status in the title race, while a striker would be of massive help. It seems that either Roman Abramovich or Carlo Ancelotti has read my blog and decided to go for Fernando Torres! A few weeks ago signing Fernando Torres for £35 million would have seemed absurd, but four goals in three games have reignited the spark in him. He is now probably the same player that he was a few years ago when he arrived at Liverpool.

There are rumours that Torres has a £50 million buyout clause in his contract and with only three days to go before the end of this transfer window, Chelsea could well increase their bid. Fernando Torres also looks to be interested in moving to Chelsea after he reportedly asked Liverpool to consider the offer from Chelsea. Liverpool have also agreed a £23m deal to sign Luis Suarez from Ajax. It could possibly trigger them to let Torres leave in order to recoup that money. Signing Torres at this stage of the season might do some damage to the morale of Didier Drogba or Nicolas Anelka, but it will certainly boost our title chances massively.

    i think torres will help to take chelsea to their earlier position in the premiership and also bring back the fear factor

      Mamat – that’s all Liverpool HAVE got now; history. Perhaps your memory is short but I seem to recall that Chelsea have produced John Terry who kept Carragher out of England’s team (and he bottled out of England when he was needed). Osgood Venables Jimmy Greaves – 3 produced by Chelsea. I recognise that Gerrard has been a great player, and he is your owe great home produced player now.

    Mamat you prat it’s not like Torres is home grown from Liverpool, you bin dippers bought him from Athletico Madrid, stupid.

    Heard of Josh Mceachran? He’s a player that is home grown from Chelsea. He’s also a player that will be scoring many goals against you scummers in the future, that is if you are still in the EPL haha!

    Chelsea are making history, not surviving off of it!

    Very eloquent Ryan … but Stricker (Steve) plays golf – which is not much good to Liverpool. The Anfield ignoramuses may chant (wrongly) about Chelsea having no history, but it’s Liverpool with no future. They’re a bit like the Titanic at the moment … the only ones with any brains, like Torres, are doing all they can to get off.
