CHELSEA TO MAKE TORRES THE MOST EXPENSIVE PLAYER IN HISTORY
There's only way to begin the latest round-up of the gossip...
The Daily Mail claims that 'Chelsea will offer up to £50million in an audacious bid to sign Liverpool striker Fernando Torres.'
Aye, it made us jump as well.
To quote the newspaper: 'Stamford Bridge owner Roman Abramovich is ready to smash the world transfer record to land the 24-year-old Spaniard.
Abramovich was prepared to pay that much for Thierry Henry when he first took over at Chelsea and he has given chief executive Peter Kenyon permission to offer the same amount for a brilliant marksman who scored 33 goals in his debut season at Anfield.'
At this point you are bound to be wondering how Chelsea could be pursuing players even though they have just sacked their manager. Well, according to the Mail, 'it is understood the club will continue to pursue those players
Grant identified prior to his dismissal - and Torres was top of his wish list, with the Barclays Premier League and Champions League runners-up happy to take advantage of the chaos at Liverpool.'
And, apparently, an inclination to sell. An insider is quoted as revealing:"There is a desire among certain people at Liverpool to sell at the right price. It's just a case of whether they have the nerve to incur the wrath of the Liverpool fans."
It's a joke ?!
Nobody at Liverpool wants "to sell Torres at the right price" !
Essien + Terry + Lampard + 50M£ Vs Torres
And we will say .... NO ! He's a red !
