Returning to Spain?

Returning to Spain?

It was a stony faced Fernando Torres sat on the bench at the Britannia Stadium yesterday.

With Rafa Benitez opting to start with Demba Ba, life isn`t exactly what Torres envisaged when he signed from Liverpool in that £50 million deal some two years ago.

However, that free paper you pick up whilst riding on the London Underground, the Metro, is running a story that infers that Torres could be exiting Stamford Bridge sooner than many people think.

It`s inferring that Torres will be returning to the club where he started his career, Atletico Madrid, in a cut-price deal with the 28 year-old Spaniard possibly going on loan for the remainder of the season!

I think they Atletico Madrid board is not stupid they will not buy him even if they have a chance, they will ask us to pay BIG BULK of his wages when they sign him on loan. I believe they will take him on loan next summer not in this January window BUT if they want him now I WILL PERSONALLY DRIVE HIM TO SPAIN, I WILL PAY FOR THE FIRST CLASS TICKET, I CAN'T SAY ANYMORE. This will be the best transfer we ever made if we can get rid of him NOW!. Sooner than Later is good for Chelsea and us.

Did he really have a stomach bug or was Rafa trying to " defend" his horrendous display vs Swansea??

Chelsea wouldn't let torres leave unless there is another big name signing going to replace him,this aspas rumour is not to replace torres but provide depth in our attack,I only see torres leaving this january if chelsea agrees a swap deal inolving torres plus cash for falcao or if chelsea buys another world class striker.....but for now,I see BA,TORRES and ASPAS in chelsea after january 31st

No loan, just a permanent move.

Cmon Liverpool...do the league and yourselves a favour. Put in a superb performance... If Torres goes he should leave after or at the same time as the dude in the # 8 shirt. If we really crave a clean slate..a new start then those would be my terms. There should be no "legends" remaining when he leaves. I never saw the game vs Swansea but it seems he will take the blunt of the blame due to his performance and Ivan will quickly be out of focus. He has always been a favourite player of mine from his Liverpool days...thank you for Mata and the other Spaniards you have attracted here FT...all the best for the rest of the season.

chokoz_cfs, Liverpool gave West Ham Joe Cole for nothing AND paid Joe £3m to leave. That's what we'll need to do with Torres, whatever transfer fee we receive, say £10m (if someone's daft enough) we'll probably need to hand if over to Torres to make him leave, as no one will pay him £175k per week. He may actually do okay in Spain so if we give A. Madrid Torres, Courtios and £20m we might just get our hands on Falcao. And the nightmare will be over. I just hope it happens on 31 January.

I would be the most happiest person if this transfer happens... Loan them torres now and make Falcao sign a pre-contract with us even if we have to pay them 40m...

I will believe this only when it actually becomes reality. Tabloid speculation is cheap. For this to happen Roman will have to do a major repentance and admit that he was gravely wrong on this deal..the man does not repent easy.

@CobhamBlue: You are right we will have to pay rest of his contract to get rid of him otherwise he will do a Malouda.
