TORRES NOT WORRIED
Chelsea striker Fernando Torres has said that he is not worried about the club being linked with the Colombian international, Radamel Falcao, who is reported transfer target for the club in the summer. The Atletico Madrid striker is regarded as one of the best in the world and he is only behind Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo in the la Liga scoring list. Torres has been a poor run of form since arriving at Chelsea back in 2011. The British transfer record signing, though, has said that he knew what he was signing up for when he arrived at Chelsea.
He has said that this is a club that will certainly not be looking to sign mediocre players. Hence, there is always going to be competition at the club – even when you’re the fans favourite player for autographed chelsea stuff. Torres’ future has been a lot of speculation in recent months, as he has been linked with a return to Atletico Madrid in a swap deal involving Radamel Falcao. The 28-year-old, though, has said that he is going to stay at Chelsea at least for the next three years, as he has a contract that runs until 2016. Falcao could cost the Premier league outfit around £ 45 million, while he is also demanding wages of around £ 200,000 per week.
“When you play for Chelsea you’re always hoping big players come and the big names are always being related with Chelsea. You cannot stop that, especially when the summer comes. Every player is welcome at Chelsea, every top player. Since I came to Chelsea only top players have come so it would not be a surprise [if Chelsea signed Falcao]. I have always felt part of the club. Things change and you could see this season that I’ve been the main striker, then Demba came to join the club,” said Torres.
