Chelsea ready to bid for striker Fernando Torres


Interesting transfer news are out and it has been reported that Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez has fears of losing star striker Fernando Torres to Chelsea.

Local British newspapers have reported that the Reds manager fears that Torres could be lost to Chelsea in a £60 million heist.

It is believed that Chelsea inquired about the 25-year-old earlier this year and Benitez believes the London club are now ready to offer as much as £60m.

It is also believed that Chelsea are in the market for a marquee signing to launch Carlo Ancelotti’s reign as manager and billionaire owner Roman Abramovich has promised to top Madrid’s offers for Kaka this month, only for the Brazilian to decide that the Spanish club had a greater status.

While Torres is loyal to Benitez and will not agitate for a move, he recently signed an improved contract which takes him to 2013 without committing to anything more than the option of an additional year at Anfield.
