Chelsea Will Have To Pay £10m To See The Back Of Misfiring Striker Fernando Torres This Summer

Mou is believed to be furious with the Spaniard’s poor attitude this year following the departure of compatriot Juan Mata to Manchester United in January. 

Chelsea are facing having to fork out a whopping £10m in compensation in order to offload misfiring front man Fernando Torres from Stamford Bridge this summer, according to reports in the Daily Mail.

The Spain international was signed from arch-rivals Liverpool by the Blues’ billionaire owner Roman Abramovich back in January 2011 for a club-record fee of £50m, with Torres agreeing a bumper five-and-a-half-year deal worth a staggering £175,000 per week.

However, Torres has proved to be a disaster in his three years in west London and now manager Jose Mourinho has told Abramovich that he must be sold at the end of the season, although the club know that they will be forced to take a huge loss on the most expensive player in the history of the Premier League when they do find a buyer for the 30-year-old.

And not only that, but with Torres now said to be digging his heels in over his departure from the Bridge in the knowledge that whichever club he moves to next season will not be able to afford to pay him his current massive salary, Chelsea will now have to compensate the marksman’s earnings going forward too.
