BREAKING NEWS: Whispers Suggest Torres Bid Of £40m + Sturridge

torres-and-sturridgeThe latest word from The Times is that Fernando Torres has handed in a transfer request to Liverpool FC in light of the continued interest from Chelsea.

CFC have met this news with an offer of £40m plus Daniel Sturridge.

He’s currently earning £110,000-a-week at Liverpool, something we’d easily be able to better. Then there’s also the promise of trophies at Chelsea, something he’s yet to come close to in his years in Merseyside.

The striker turns 27 in a few weeks time and after wasting some of the best years of his career with Liverpool, he’s obviously keen to better himself.

Liverpool FC have confirmed that Torres has submitted a written transfer request that has been rejected.

  1. Yeah, they come on Talksport and said he WILL be a Chelsea player by the end of the window. He has demanded a move by monday. He stated, Liverpool will not finish in the top 4 and even though Chelsea may not win the league this year they compete every year at the highest level and he has eyes only for Chelsea. They reckon Liverpool will be forced to open talks with Chelsea tomorrow.

  2. come on torres come 2 chelsea !!!

  3. Torres is not going to take a step backward. Chelsea is a club that is on the slide.

  4. lol shockin article. wont happen

  5. Hahaha £40m plus Sturridge!!!!

    £41m!!!!!

    Stop listening to the whispers in your head!!!!

    Loooooooooooonnnnnnnnnn

  6. Keep on dreaming! It won’t be happening and now you will have to deal with Suarez as well as Torres causing havoc on your aging back 4!

  7. why would torres want to go to the old age pensioners club you chelski fans how many times have you fallen for this one with torres the deal with luiz fell through so they came up with this one to keep the natives happy wake up and smell the roses . your ten points behind u shited your club got rid of wilkins behind your manager back you beat a very poor bolton side and your on the way back to win the league dont think so . wont be long before the ruski gets bored and goes as for sturidge part of the make believe deal to late the other cockney clown hodgson wanted him not Kenny but a enjoy the rest of the season you blues

  8. Sturridge? No way! It’d have to be Drogba they offered in return.

  9. If he wants to go to Chelsea and has indeed handed in a transfer request then i would say fair enough on your bike son!!……………….no less than 50 miliion though!…………………..and you can keep that sack of shit sturridge laa

  10. joel – youre not a Times reader then?

  11. Why would Torres leave when Liverpool have shown way more promise, both on and off the field than us?

    Yeah, we won 4-0 against a shitty side this week, but that’s just not good enough.

    The way I see it, we’ll end up with the Europa League next season, same with Liverpool, and since Liverpool finally bought someone with world class talent (Súarez), without selling, I don’t see any reason at all for them to sell him to us.

    Especially when he said he is a man of loyalty and intended to fulfill his contract, and that was just a week ago or so.

    Sry, he is the best striker in the world, when in form, but he’s also got an insane amount of loyalty to Liverpool, so I don’t see it happening at all.

    No way is he coming to another english club, no way.

  12. 40m plus sturridge!!!!!!!!!!!
    I just pee’d myself!

  13. It’s not Sturridge they’re offering but Anelka. I have it on excellent authority. Anelka plus £35 million.

  14. torres will come 2 chelsea u just wait heheheheheh ye baby ye

  15. seems like a lot of bitter pool fans on here still chasing the 70s. Your a small time club now gents…just try break into the top 10 this season.

  16. Liverpool are going down torres to chelsea

  17. LOL you stupid scousers.

    Its all over the morning papers. He has demanded a move before monday! He has fallen out with the club and players, are you not understanding this?

  18. Oh and be serious, Suarez is not World-Class. After the world cup he begged Chelsea, City, United, Barca, Inter and Real to sign him and ALL clubs opted not to. What does that say? It says even Mikel would be a prolific goal scorer in the Dutch league

  19. Its pretty much a done deal! Liverpool are forced into selling ASAP as they need to use the money to find cover

  20. Yes I’d deal with Chelsea. –

    £50 million plus old Drogba!

  21. 40m for an injury prone striker, have Chelsea gone bonkers!

    Liverpool are in freefall, let someone else bail them out of their mess

    If Liverpool had two brain cells in the city between them they would sell Torres and rebuild for the future, but not with Chelseas cash.

    If I were a Liverpool fan sell Torres and look long term

    Best Regards, from rainy Kilmanock

  22. torres to chelsea,stop wasting your years at liverpool,,dont make us laugh listen to all off you lot.how did abramovich get his money answer sucking boris yeltsins TALLYWACKER,,,nuf said keep your money we can say no just like when u tried to sign aguero hahahahahahahahahahah 5 times we won it 5 times in istanbul we won it 5 times

  23. IF HE WANTS TO GO THEN LET HIM.WE ARE LIVERPOOL AND HE SHOULD BE PROUD TO BE AT OUR CLUB.THEY TRIED TO GET STEVIE AND GOT NOTHING.WE HAVE NOW GOT SAUREZ WHY WOULD TORRES WANT TO PLAY IN A SIDE THAT IS FULL OF OLD AGE PLAYERS,BLUES GOING NOWHERE SLOWLY.YNWA

  24. Not a single quote in any report on Torres wanting to leave LFC. Only conjecture from pundits looking to sell papers.

    “Keep the blue flag flying high” you mean those little plastic ones Roman buys for all of the glory hunting fans because they are too cheap to buy one for themselves?

  25. All you Chav fans wishing and dreaming that he will come to you, as you are getting old and passed it and we are getting younger and younger by the moment. Keep dreaming and reading the papers because that’s all you have. The only club Torres would join is AC Milan as he has come out and said it before, he will never, let me say this again, NEVER join your non historic club plain and simply.

  26. Oh well then, if it’s all over the morning papers it MUST be true. Like every other story the papers ‘report’ on and quotes coming from ‘sources’ close to the football club is true. Do me a favour! Torres wearing that shitty blue, playing for a shitty club with players past their best; I just don’t see it happening – sorry Chelski but that there is the truth. Keep dreaming. YNWA.

  27. Abramovich cant afford Torres hes just bought the world cup hahaha YNWA

  28. He wont go to chelsea there an ageing team on the way down the new fifa rules will put the final nail in the coffin. He will only leave liverpool for barcalona.

  29. Ha ha not exactly setting the english game on fire yourselves are you?

  30. Tony Evans and Tony Barrett from the Times are peddling this story. They have previous for telling massive porkies to sell copy. Anyone remember the “100% accurate” story from this summer they co-authored? No? Does the front page headline “China buys Liverpool” ring any bells (and I do mean front page of the Times!!)? It proved to be based on a string of little white lies told to them by the con-artists charading as serious buyers for LFC. Any serious journalists worth their salt could have done enough research within 2 hours to find out the dubious background of the individuals purporting to be representing the Chinese government sovereign wealth fund. These clowns are hastily trying to claim a scoop. I would be very sceptical of this. It just doesnt sound right. LFC dont have to sell and I’m pretty sure that they wont unless they make a huge profit and have lined up a veryt good replacement.

  31. haha. Some Chelsea fans are imbeciles. He doesn’t want to go to your club seeing as he has been saying recently he wants to stay. You are just HOPING he does. It is just the papers hyping stuff after the Suarez deal. How come Torres hasn’t actually made a formal transfer request or even made a statement? Because it is fake, fannys.

  32. chelsea are probably looking for a decent penalty taker after TERRY fucked that one up slipping on his are…haha…ynwa

  33. lol chelsea scum stop drooling do u not know his song HIS ARMBAND PROVED HE WAS A RED stop trying to steal our players with ur russian drug money ffs let wogba do ur dirty work DREAMERS

  34. £40mil, please buy him Chels, injury prone, lazy, already had the best season he will ever have, more than welcome to Torres, all yours and if we get Sturridge in return, I see that as very very good business for Liverpool. Suarez and Sturridge = plenty of effort and goals.

  35. Chelsea rentboys are going to so much egg on their face come monday morning…

    Hahahahahha

  36. look at all the butt hurt liverpool fans, and nothing has even happened yet.

  37. haha tim. I’m sure you would be the same if some stupid idiots started shouting that malouda/ drogba were DEFINITELY on their way out xD

  38. lol funny article…stop wasting your time on rumours and whispers…listen 2 d fact chelsea, TORRES IS NOT FOR SALE!!!

  39. haha all you Chelski Rent Boys are living in a dream world, Why would Torres want to join you? you are only a couple of places above us! all your players are aging and you have the worst support in the prem! Your bubble will soon burst when Roman gets bored and sells you! Get a grip and realise you are just a small club from London!

  40. Nah Tim, its more about that we realise he wont ever peak again so at £40mil that represents great business for us, even more so if Chelsea throw in a decent player.
    Only posting here as its linked on Newsnow and I thought the blog poster is overly excited about a player who wont peak again. All yours seriously.

  41. One hopes Torres has not been diminished by his time with a lesser club. His form has not been good for some time, but this is to be expected after his shocking realization that several of his best years have been utterly wasted. Happily, one would expect him to be rejuvenated by joining a far better, trophy-gathering team like Chelsea.

  42. 5 times 5 times get over it, its not a HISTORY lesson. King Kunny will take you down COME ON CHELS

  43. Blimey – looks like they now have the interweb in Liverpool. Next they’ll be using proper sentences (not the court ones) and being coherent. Who knows? Maybe one day they’ll recognise the fact that their ‘istree started in the 60s and ended with the backpass law. I wouldn’t count on it though – the inbreeding is usually a downward spiral of progressive ignorance and collective amnesia. King Kev, King Kenny, you’re not the messiahs, you’re the ringleaders of a large bunch of deluded feckwits.

  44. Torres to Chelsea. Joe Cole to Liverpool. Sounds like a good season’s dealings to me.

  45. this is jocking:) sturidge is better player then torres. Liverpool must pay for Sturidge Not chelsea For Torres

  46. To all ya blaberin fools. Torres is a playa trin ta get some quality ball. Liverpool aint that place. Chelsea is payin shit, but will take years of practice and perfection to do what the fools(pools) have done the past two seasons.

    So shut ya pie hole and learn some shit!

  47. Torres to chelsea is the best news i heard in the summer but it never happened.I just hope that this time,its for real.D.D will turn 33yr soon anelka will turn 32 and so on..so if f.torres is brought in i see a Chelsea that want to compete in europe for yrs to come atleast 3yrs..

  48. Dogshit
    Liverpool FC
    All you have is history
    You havent won the league
    since i was only 3
    thats why Torres want to leave..

  49. ok lets torress go but always he will remember lfc n when lfc will b go up 2 the table n then he will thing he made a big mistake we dont want him n no body bigger than lfc

  50. torres seem perfect an inclusion to chelsea’s squad, to me he is what we really need to rest our old legs.

  51. Hey is wishere mad why should we makeweight on sturridge. When sturridge is the second best young player in chelsea squad

  52. We couldnt buy a Whore in a Whorehouse.

  53. Wait and see you dippers…Suarez must be shitting himself right now and I wonder how poor old Stevie Me will react …your team will suffer badly whatever happens now….another slide coming up?…such a shame really….Mugs!

  54. I have listened on the radio and read the world wide web and you liverpudlian’s as your are known by real northern folk are the most arrogant fans that live and breath that red drivel you spout and churn out.
    Why would Torres leave “the original history makers” themselves and join the ” historyless” blue “chavs” from London you all ask and spout?]
    Well, thats where the problem starts and finishes you arrogant cnuts. Thats all you have a past history relying on “king kenny” the second coming of the Anfield messiah. History,history, history thats all you can spout about. Open your eyes and ears and stop talking about “the Liverpool way” “the Kop” “the European cup” blah blah blah. Join the 21 st century and face facts. Your so called “fans” will keep you back in the dark ages of the “70′s and 80′s” by talking about “the Liverpool way” “Rafa understands the heart and soul of this club” if you realised sooner that Rafa was not a new messiah but a good manager who won you the European cup and the FA cup by penalties and Steven Gerrard. Not some tactical genius or outstanding substitutions. You clung on to the “in Rafa we trust” bullshite and should have outed him in an “un – koplike – way” history history blah blah blah and modernised like other clubs and be ruthless as fans etc. But no, you still cling on to the “Liverpool way”
    “king kenny” , “we got history no other club has” bullshite and you left Rafa in charge and he has now left you in deep deep do,do. But the longer you stay with the arrogance of “the Liverpool way” the longer you will stay out of the top 4 even top 6

    This was why only your club had such a clash with Chelsea because you were not happy with our “new – history” as opposed to your “Liverpool history” that it is your devine right to win the Premiership year in year out but in fact through your arrogance / ignorrance as fans have not won the league in 20 years.

    Now do us all a favour and had over Torres and all those hub caps and wallets you have nicked over the years back and you’ll get £50 million and half a new team!

  55. Torres fed up coming home to find his house has been ransacked by thieving scouse bin dippers course he wants to go to chelsea.

  56. How cum so many Lpool fans are on here sayin why would Torres want to leave for Chelsea when were pensioners…but luk at the league table, were are Lpool..are they in CL? NO!. are they challengin for titles? NO! so how da fuck can ppl say Chelsea are a ageing team goin downhill when Lpool USED to be da best..but you scouse pricks luv to live in the past and still talk about trophies you won in then70s..how mjany trophies have you in past decade? How many have we won in the past decade?? AND were STILL chalengin for all trophies..so its more realistic Torres will be at a BETTER team in Chelsea.BLUES FOR LIFE!

  57. Torres will join Chelsea because we actually win trophies instead of droning on about how we won them in the past.

    The truth is Liverpool are simply not good enough, or big enough for a player that good – he’s surrounded by medicority – with the exception of Gerard and maybe Reina.

    He’ll also join because London is more attractive for a player from abroad – (and also where most Liverpool ‘fans’ seem to come from).

    Take our 50 million and spend it on 10 more average players to complement the rest of the squad.

  58. This is all nonsense. spendin such a great amount of money on one player, when we need 3 or 4… I have to say that, even if Mr Torres is a great player (nobody can deny it), there are plenty cheaper options when it comes to the attack. Take Lukaku: He is 17 but scores a lot. Babacar from fiorentina. Pazzini from sampdoria (tho he may have signed for inter by now), llorente from bilbao, edinson cavani from Napoli! but we would need someone very good in defence (like luiz that we will miss out) like kjaer, Badstuber, ( and i am sure even ryan shawcross would prove useful). we need people on the right flank of the attack to replace anelka in a few years (lets say one more season). who this would be? Hamsik can only play as a playmaker, javier pastore? maybe but unlikely.
    My point is. there are plenty of options, all cheaper and we will need some more players, ready to play in one or two seasons. so we will need to spend this money. but we are limiting ourselves to do so by doing this deal for torres.
    We EVEN DO NOT KNOW where he play! does Ancelotti wants to drop our beloved 4-3-3 for a 4-4-2? allow me to raise my eyebrow!

  59. It amazing were all these chelsea rent boys have come from you win a few trophys and they all come out the wood work ha ha ha ha ha yes we have the history that you only dream of and yes we have not played well this and last season but we are turning the corner now under dalglish do you remember him he scored the winner on your manor that won the league on your patch ha ha ha as for torres we will keep him untill the summer then you can have him at our price or he goes on auction and the biggest club( money wise ) in the land if not the world man city will out bid your drug lord so you keep watching your over the hill mob and dream on

  60. If you were Liverpool you’d be mad not to rip their hand off with that sort of offer.

    David

  61. Half a billion quid spent and you can’t fill your ground. Your a middling sized club with a temporarily inflated status related to the unstable political and economic situation in Russia. A move to Chelsea is an endorsement of everything that is ugly in football.

    Torres was played without a break from his mid teens and is close to burnout in the same way that Michael Owen experienced. By the time he has settled into your squad he will only have 18 months of top level football left in his career. 40m quid plus a top young English prospect. Yes please.

  62. Just like Citeh, Chelsea show what’s wrong with modern ‘big clubs’ with no soul.

    3 days before the window chucking money around, no class, no soul and no history.

  63. Someone needs to explain how anyone is going to “force” LFC to sell their contracted player. Torres has every right to feel how he feels … disappointed, restless, not assured of the future of the club etc etc, but the timing is just awful. Perhaps if the offer jumps another 10 or 20 million and Liverpool have players lined up they’d consider it. Even still, selling this kind of quality to one of your main rivals would be madness. Liverpool simply can’t afford to let him go and they absolutely can’t let him go to Chelsea.
    Torres has done all he can: ask to leave and submit a written request, he simply has no other options left. The club will do what they think is best and that will be ultimately decided by Dalglish and Comolli. The player will be left with a simple choice to either give his all for the club or spend the rest of the season on the bench. LFC won’t be strong-armed into anything, especially when the one trying to force the move is a contracted employee. I’ll be happy with whatever they decide to do.

  64. nathan you’re an idiot. Chelsea has one of the best attendance records in the league for years

    At least make up something believable before you start spewing bile.

    just more butthurt liverpool fans, even though nothing has happened. Laughable.

  65. First of all, to sell Torres without having the time to get a suitable replacement is just bad business, and no, Suarez is bought to complement Torres not replace him. Second, NESV is not GIllett and Hicks, they listen to fans, as seen with the sacking of Hodgson. The last thing they want is to spend money getting Suarez to appease the fans and end up selling Torres and turning the fans against them. Thirdly, NESV is looking to build the club into a better team, if they want to run it like a business, Gerrard and Reina would have been sold to Real and the Mancs already. So the Torres deal, never going to happen these few days. You can have him in the summer, when we get a world class striker replacement. 60mil is good money but it’s very stupid to sell now. In my opinion, this is nothing more than a feeble attempt to unsettle Torres before the Chelsea- Liverpool game.

  66. if chelsea want to part with 50 mil for that judas just weeks after he pledged his loyalty then let them do it, it would still on bring the average age of their squad down to 63!! we’ll have ashley young, adam johnson and benzema with the money……….cheers
    p.s you can keep porridge or sturridge, same thing

  67. am LFC.fan 4 life i will advice our club to sale toress for agood price now and use the money and go for BENZEMA and ALEXIS SANCHEZ and RICKY VAN WOLSFK.because even if toress stays he is not going to play with his mind for us because he has already shown this to us before this time that his mind is no more for the club,its better lfc should rush for BENZEMA and SANCHEZ -RICKY VAN. and sign them before the window close.
