Torres, Chelsea, Mourinho,

The £50 million man as former Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish used to call him, is up for sale after failing to impress new manager Jose Mourinho.

Fernando Torres moved to Chelsea in 2011, and despite his big price tag failed to bring with him the kind of form that he had showed at Liverpool, and now with the arrival of Samuel Eto’o at the club it seems as though he will find it difficult to get a place in the team prompting Chelsea to be open to offers on the 29-year-old who will be eager to play first team football in order to get into the Spanish squad for next summer’s World Cup in Brazil.

During this season’s first three games the Spaniard has been substituted against Hull City, did not play in the match against Aston Villa, and came on as a substitute in the match with Manchester United last Monday night.

Fellow Spanish teammate David Villa moved from Barcelona to Atletico Madrid in order to get more playing time to impress Spanish team coach Vicente Del Bosque, and you can expect Torres to do the same.

The problem could be how much money Chelsea are asking as no club in their right mind would pay more than £12 million for the striker who has lost his golden touch.
