LONDON- Yesterday,31st January few minutes before the transfer football deadline ends, Spanish International striker made a controversial move to London’s own Chelsea from Liverpool.
The Spanish striker signed a five years deal with the West London club for an undisclosed fee reported to be £50 million, which set a new record for a British transfer and made him the fourth most expensive footballer in history.
"This is the target for every footballer - to try to play for one of the top clubs in the world," said the 26 years old.
"They [Chelsea] are one of the biggest teams in Europe and are always fighting for everything."
Liverpool looked to plug the gap left by Torres leaving by signing two strikers - Uruguayan Luis Suarez from Ajax for £22.7m and Andy Carroll from Newcastle for £35m.
Chelsea also brought in Benfica defender David Luiz for a reported fee of £21.3m.
Despite Liverpool get two extra talented strikers, it still manage to angered of some of the Liverpool die hard fans, especially the one who idolise Torres. Some of the Torres fans , burn the number nine Liverpool jersey with his name on it.
Manager Kenny Dalglish reaction towards Torres move was: "Movement is part and parcel of football but the most important people at Liverpool Football Club are the ones who want to be here."
Well in my opinion, player comes, player go but the way Torres talk about Liverpool when he is at Chelsea, it shows that he doesn’t have any heart..
