OFFICIAL: Torres Hands In Written Transfer Request
Liverpool were rocked last night as star striker Fernando Torres handed in a written transfer request. The Merseyside club have rejected the request and said in an official statement on the clubs website that they expect the Spaniard to honour his contract.
The Club said in a statement:
“Fernando Torres tonight submitted a written transfer request, which has been rejected by Liverpool.
“Fernando is under a long-term contract and the Club expects him to honour the commitment he made to Liverpool FC and its supporters when he signed the agreement.”
Chelsea made an offer in the region of £35-£40 million for Torres last week and it seems the Blues interest has turned the strikers head. It is now expected Chelsea will keep up the pressure with a second bid of around £50-£60 million, which may prove difficult to resist for an unhappy player.
