Chelsea striker Fernando Torres has dismissed rumours that he will be leaving the club this summer, saying he is looking forward to working with new manager Jose Mourinho.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Torres says he has had to deal with speculation surround his future for the last few years, but that he remains committed to seeing out his contract that he signed upon joining the Blues from Liverpool.

“I’m looking forward to the chance of working with Jose,” he said.

“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 not been at his best since his £50million move from Anfield, but his form did pick up somewhat towards the end of this season, particularly in the Europa League, as he scored a fine goal against Benfica in the final in Chelsea’s 2-1 win.

However, he is still being linked with other clubs, and was reportedly offered to Italian side Napoli as part of a deal to bring Uruguayan striker Edinson Cavani to Chelsea.

The 29-year-old has also been linked with a return to former club Atletico Madrid, as they seek a replacement for Radamel Falcao, who recently left in a £50million deal to join Monaco.
