El Confidencial says Abramovich has never wavered in his support of Torres, pulling him aside regularly for pep talks.
"I have not signed you for three months or a year. You are going to be here five years," the Russian billionaire told Torres last season as he struggled in front of goal.
Another time, Abramovich told his £50 million man: "Chelsea will be you and ten others."
After Drogba's revelation, Torres is waiting for word from Abramovich confirming he will be their No1 striker next season.
