Chelsea prepared to sell Torres in January for knockdown £20M
Chelsea are willing to take a massive lose on striker Fernando Torres as they invite offers for the Spanish flop. The Daily Mail says the £150,000-a-week striker has scored just three Barclays Premier League goals since his move to Stamford Bridge from Liverpool on January 31.
Chelsea considered sending him on loan to rebuild his shattered confidence, but they are now prepared to sell.
The club will have to take a massive financial hit on the most expensive player in British football history, but they have almost exhausted their other options.
Instead they will listen to any club prepared to offer around £20m and match his huge salary demands next month.
