Chelsea fear missing out on Liverpool striker Fernando Torres to Manchester United.

The People says Chelsea insiders claim Torres has cooled on the idea of a journey south and would prefer to switch to Manchester United, even if such a move would cause uproar on Merseyside.

Blues boss Carlo Ancelotti hinted on Saturday that their pursuit of Torres could be over.

"We have Didier Drogba, Nicolas Anelka and Daniel Sturridge I dont think we need other strikers," said Ancelotti.
