Torres tells Chelsea fans: Abramovich wants to build new team

Fernando Torres has told Chelsea fans he's part of a new team being built by Roman Abramovich.

Torres spoke of his move from Liverpool yesterday.

And he revealed: "Chelsea really pressed for me, they really wanted me. Transfer fees are on the way down in football right now but Roman Abramovich paid big money for me. That shows the confidence he has in me.

"He still has plans and ambitions for the future, building a great team, competing with the Manchester clubs and Arsenal and being the best in Europe.

"And that's what I want. I like new challenges. This one is perfect.

"Yes, Liverpool wanted me to stay. But I think they understand. Like I understood when Xabi Alonso and Javier Mascherano left. They wanted a new life."
