Spaniard Fernando Torres has been linked with a return to his home country in the summer since he does not appear to be part of new manager José Mourinho’s plans at Stamford Bridge. Immediately after taking over, the Portuguese said that he was not entirely happy with the performances of Torres so far. However, he may be prepared to give the Spaniard an opportunity to prove that he will be capable of living up to his £ 50 million price tag. Despite this, Chelsea have been linked with a move for several strikers like Edinson Cavani over the last few weeks.
This coupled with Barcelona’s need for a striker means that inevitably Torres has been linked with Barcelona. It is no secret that Torres interest playing against Barcelona especially at the camp Nou. He has scored for different clubs at this iconic stadium, but he has moved swiftly to reject any rumours about a possible move to the Catalan club by saying that he wants to stay with Chelsea. He has said that he still feels like having an unfinished job at the club, and he will be holding talks with new manager Mourinho in order to determine his future.
He is currently with the Spanish national team squad at the Confederations cup.
“I look forward to talking with Mourinho and to know what plans he has for me. The first thing I am aware of is he will expect much more from me, I expect more from me. Now I have pressure Mourinho adds and that’s a challenge for a player. I have known Sandro Rosell for a long time. There is a personal relationship, but nothing more than that. My head is now in the Confederations Cup, immediately after that Chelsea,” said Torres will also dismissing his personal relationship with Sandro Rosell – the Barcelona president.
