Abramovich tells Torres new Chelsea team will be built around him

Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has told Fernando Torres he will build his new team next season around the Spaniard. The London Evening Standard says Abramovich has told Torres not to worry about his goal drought and plans to bring in the talent who can best suit the striker's style of play.

Real Madrid star Kaka, Napoli midfielder Marek Hamsik and Lille winger Eden Hazard are among the players Chelsea are considering.

"The club has an owner who continues to invest in the side, who has a dream and will not stop until he gets it," said 26-year-old Torres.
