Torres doesn’t want to leave Stamford Bridge.
Since the appointment of Jose Mourinho as manager, under-pressure Chelsea striker Fernando Torres has been constantly linked with a move away from the club.
Yet the Spaniard has spoken out about his future and despite reported interest from Napoli in the 29-year-old, Torres insists he wants to stay at Stamford Bridge next season.
“I’m looking forward to the chance of working with Jose,” the forward was quoted in the Metro.
“It is the same every summer, there is talk and rumours every day.
“When I signed for Chelsea I signed for five-and-a-half years and I want to be there for all of that.”
Torres has struggled to find the form at the Blues that he achieved at previous club’s Liverpool and Atletico Madrid since his £50m move from the Reds in January 2011 – the highest fee ever paid for a player by a British club.
In 132 matches for the west London club the Spain international has scored just 35 goals, although that did include a semi-final strike against Barcelona in the Champions League as Chelsea went on to win the competition in 2012.
With Mourinho pursuing Napoli striker Edison Cavani it’s thought that Torres could be used as a make-weight in the deal, although the striker himself is clearly not so keen on a move.
The forward has had one of the most successful football careers a player could wish for in terms of silverware, winning the FA Cup, the Champions League and Europa League with Chelsea, as well as the World Cup and two European Championships with Spain.
