Unhappy Fernando Torres considers his Chelsea future
Chelsea striker Fernando Torres will hold talks with the club about his future after criticising the way he has been treated.
The Spaniard admitted it was one of the biggest disappointments of his career to start on the bench in the Champions League final win over Bayern Munich.
Torres told Spanish journalist Guillem Balague: “I have been through the worst moments of my career during the season.
“I felt they have treated me in a way I was not expecting.”

Are we missing something here?
Fernando Torres cost Chelsea a lot of money, a hell of a lot of money. £50m to be exact. The Spaniard then proceeded to play football as though he’d landed on Planet Earth via Pluto, or like the character in Quantum Leap had taken control of his body.
Unsurprisingly having given the former Liverpool man enough chances to prove himself, chances he pissed away with alarming regularity, he was dropped.
However having ‘re-captured’ his form a tad it seems that the 28 year old has gotten delusions of grandeur and kicks up a stink because he feels he has been badly treated by the West London club. Very odd.
It seems to me that Chelsea, from the management team to the club’s supporters, have given Torres a great deal of respect and more than enough time to justify his fee and for the player to then turn around and effectively bad mouth the West London club at the very moment they should be celebrating their Champions League Final just smacks of desperation.
Expect Roman Abramovich to speak to the player and to put him in his place. The simple truth is that if Torres continues on this tack he will get his wish, and be offloaded. When that does occur, and it will, expect the Blues to be the real losers here as no one will pay even half the money Chelsea paid for the striker.
