Spanish striker pleased with how season has gone.
Chelsea striker Fernando Torres insists he is happy at Stamford Bridge, despite claims that he will be sold this summer, according to the Sunday Mirror.
The 29-year-old has not at any point looked like rediscovering his best form from his Liverpool days, but the £50million signing does not feel he has been a complete failure at Chelsea, pointing to his form in the team’s Europa League win this season.
The Spaniard scored in the final win over Benfica and against Everton in the final Premier League game of the season, taking his total goal tally for the season to 23 goals in all competitions, his best return since joining the club.
“My decision to come to Chelsea has been vindicated by the medals I have won,” he said. “Not everything has been as bad as people have said. I am happy for this season and winning trophies with Chelsea, that’s what I wanted to do when I joined.
“I am feeling more important than in the past, so I think the future will be even better. When you are involved and you feel you are an important part of the team, you feel much better.
“I will be a Chelsea player, why not? I signed five years here, I have a contract and I want to do many, many things in this time. I still have three years and, hopefully, more.”
Despite some improvement in his form, Chelsea are said to be willing to sell him this summer as they look to bring in some new strikers. The likes of Edinson Cavani and Radamel Falcao have been strongly linked as targets, as the club look to find a genuine 30-goal-a-season striker to boost their title hopes.
Torres has been linked with Fiorentina and his old club Atletico Madrid, and may find his form hasn’t been quite good enough to keep him at the club any longer.
