Chelsea’s Ancelotti given all-clear to pursue Liverpool’s Torres

Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti has been given the all-clear to go after Liverpool striker Fernando Torres.

Blues owner Roman Abramovich has allowed the Italian tactician to make a £50million bid for the Spaniard if he decides he wants to leave Anfield.

Torres has speculated that he would not necessarily return to Spain of Liverpool do not go out and buy quality players meaning another club in England may benefit from his services.

Abramovich has previously attempted to bring Torres to Stamford Bridge but after Tuesday night’s exit from the Champions League, it appears as if the London club will up the ante on the former Atletico Madrid man.
