Fernando Torres is staying in Chelsea
There had been rumors about a possible transfer from Chelsea to Atletico Madrid, the striker's first club. However, in an interview with SkySports, Chelsea's current manager, Jose Mourinho, said Fernando Torres is not going anywhere.
"We have a good squad. The perfect squad would be with this 18 players, not 17 or 16, but rules are rules and we are working hard, even here, for not to have these kind of problems in the future.
"We want to have more English players in our squad which we are going to have in the future but in this moment we are still in the middle of this process.
"So at the moment we have to make a decision about one player not to be on that list.”
When asked whether that player was Torres, he answered:
"No. Three strikers is fundamental in a squad and we have three strikers; Fernando, Didier and Diego so one of them is not going for sure,"
