Fernando Torres is eager to play out his contract with the Europa League winners.
Fernando Torres has re-iterated his desire to stay with Chelsea for the remainder of his current contract, after being questioned on his future after the team’s Europa League winning performance against Benfica on Wednesday.
Torres scored the opening goal on the night, and has been on fine form for the Blues all season in the competition, scoring six goals.
Despite his failure to live up to his £50m price tag, Torres is keen to put any doubts about his future to rest, and has made it clear he wanted to stay at Stamford Bridge.
“I signed for five years and I hope to stay at least for this time,” the former Liverpool striker told Sky Sports.
The Spaniard has contributed just seven league goals this season, and faces constant criticism from fans and pundits alike about his inability to find the back of the net on a consistent basis.
With Jose Mourinho reported to be the new incoming manager and a potential strike partnership with young forward Romelu Lukaku, Torres may finally get the opportunity to play off of a target man, and look to poach on any loose balls in the penalty area, something he did superbly in his time at Anfield.
