Chelsea manager Mourinho wants Fernando Torres
August 24, 2014 6:56 pm
Chelsea football club manager Jose Mourinho says he wants to keep Fernando Torres even though the striker was not selected in the Blues’ squad against Leicester.
Torres is the club’s third-choice striker since the summer arrivals of Diego Costa and Didier Drogba.
He has been linked with a number of clubs, with AC Milan the latest reportedly interested in signing him.
But Mourinho says he wants Torres to stay.
The £50m signing from Liverpool was an unused substitute in Chelsea’s season-opening victory against Burnley last week.
To compound matters for the Spaniard, his replacement and compatriot Costa – a £32m signing from Atletico Madrid – has made a fine start to his Chelsea career, scoring against Burnley and finding the net on his home debut as the Blues beat Leicester 2-0.
