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

After giving up on their pursuit of Wayne Rooney Chelsea are lining-up a player-plus-cash swap deal involving Fernando Torres for Liverpool striker 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.

    Those fans who dsnt like em at L’pool, honestly u sud question ya management. They kept bull dozing all the responsibility on one player for too long without Investing money to buy good players n eating chunk of profit. Its not fair! Torres was made for L”pool n Spain. He did gr8 just lyk Suarez n Gerrard. Coming from Chelsea fan.

    No! Chelsea should give us Mata & Moses, plus £30m. Else Chelsea should forget about the deal, cause LFC don’t need Torres again! YNWA

    Helloooo?? ANY LFC supporter who thinks that getting Torres back in a trade for Suarez MUST be on drugs! Torres WAS a great striker, prior to his last eighteen months at Anfield, when he QUIT on his team! Now, he is a WASHED-UP “HAS BEEN”, and NOT HALF the player that Suarez is. You people are CRAZY!

    We all know that Torres is not the Torres we use 2 know b4,eversince he left 4 Chelsea, Torres have decline both club and national level and for a club seeking to finish in the top 4 that won’t be a good deal Torres have lost it.

    Moun shld think of bringing the best out of the players at his disposal. What makes you a betta manager is managing the potential of your players as they are

    Torres has not played well for the best part of three years now. He is a shadow of his former self so in today’s market is worth no more than £10 million. With that in mind why would we want to sell Suarez for £30m plus him? That’s one pound less than the Arsenal offer!! I for one NEVER want to see Torreschenko in a red shirt again. LFC have said they will not sell Suarez at any price to another premier league club.
