Torres Exclusion Causes Rumours of Chelsea Exit

How much humiliation can one man take? As the trials and tribulations of Fernando Torres continue it may just be that we eventually find out. However, the exclusion of the £50m striker from Chelsea’s matchday squad against Leicester caused some to speculate that this may be more than mere salt in the wounds. With Mario Balotelli’s move to Liverpool a near certainty, Milan are in need of striker and Italy has often looked like the most likely destination for the Torres. How much of the £50m Chelsea could recoup is unclear but the feeling is that many at the club would just be happy to have the Spanish striker off their books after 2 and a half years of consistent failure.
