Liverpool Reject Fernando Torres Exit Request – Chelsea Continue To Hover

Liverpool have confirmed that striker Fernando Torres made an official transfer request yesterday afternoon (amidst a flurry of concerted interest from Chelsea), and that the club have also turned the request down – telling the Spaniard that they expect him to honour his long-term contract at Anfield:

“Fernando Torres tonight submitted a written transfer request, which has been rejected by Liverpool.

“Fernando is under long-term contract and the club expect him to honour the commitment he made to Liverpool FC and its supporters when he signed the agreement.”

The Sun, the Telegraph and the Independent are all already suggesting that, whilst Liverpool continue to bleat that the ‘player is not for sale’, Chelsea are increasingly confident of getting their man before the transfer window closes on Monday night – and will do so by offering Liverpool a tidy, revised bid of £42.5 million-plus-Daniel Sturridge for his services and a contract that will make him by far-and-away the highest paid player at Stamford Bridge.

Golly Moses.

    Why? He would be better at Real Madrid. Chelsea don’t need him. Although, isn’t the number 9 jersey vacant at Chelsea?

    “£42.5 million-plus-Daniel Sturridge”… £42.5 Million then.

    pleas gerrard make him back his mind…

  6. Montesquieu says:

    He may be interested to go to Chelsea, but Torres would never go to his hated rival Real Madrid.

  7. C says:

    I wonder how silly season got it’s name…

  8. Ted Balls says:

    I hope for the sake of decency Liverpool dig their heels in and tell Chelsea to piss off. It’s all wine & roses when a player of Torres’ standing first arrives at a new club, but he signed a 6-year contract for fucks sake! Good times or bad, he should bloody well honour it!

    Though nowadays it seems if a player has made his mind up that he’s leaving, once the ball starts rolling, there’s no stopping it. Shame.

  9. Annie says:

    Oh man..There is no happy ending for Torres in this case. He stays and the fans boo him. He goes, Chelsea fans boo him. How did his management let him into this mess?

  10. The Oracle. says:

    To all my Liverpool friends this is a dark age for you (and myself, I will admit my supportership to Liverpool)
    But let’s be fair the club has brought this upon themselves with the brilliance of the magical Raffa and his followers. It’s time for Torres to leave, whether Chelsea or The Mighty Madrid…This is where Liverpool must show their true colours and find a new Fernando Torres. Us Liverpudlians should stick together, if Torres wants to leave it should be to the club’s duty to let him do so. For all, should I quote the legendary: “Once we start fighting between us, there is no hope for the future.”

    Sell him, buy shawcross, play shawcross and carra together in central defense and let things sort themselves out.

  12. redder says:

    John terry will hunt his wife!

  13. ted says:

    How come they’re prepared to shell out the 42 mill for Torres but were too cheap to stump up another couple for Luiz? Yet another snub for Chelsea would be funny though. If he wants Champions lge footy why go to Chelsea? Why not join a team that’s actually got a chance of winning it, Chelsea haven’t got a clue in Europe.

    wat the hell torres wat r u thinking!!!! you just gave up on liverpool like liverpool were a piece of shit he was never be a true liverpool player. gerrard plzzz talk some sense into this idiot torres was my idol now he is my enemy.i just deleted all my pics of him(108) from my pics fuk u torres fuk u!!!!!

  15. Tanya says:

    Though being a Chelsea fan I do think it would be better for Torres to go to Real Madrid because as someone of scumpool fans have suggested they will fry and eat him with chips.

    On a second thought, he should go to Chelsea because I think Torres is highly talented and he should make Gerrard cry by scoring very Berba-like hattricks against Liverpool every now and then.

  16. liam says:

    tanya get a life and go 4 the good teams he should not leave to real madrid chelsea or wat ever crap team u like he should not leave at all

  17. Devs says:

    I think Torres should stay at Liverpool as thats where he made himself into a world renowned player. Before the move to Liverpool who had really heard of him? Hes a top player with some top Liverpool Memorabilia behind him :)

  18. liam says:

    well said devs thats complettly rite that dosent get him off the hook though 4 even considering leaving!!!

  19. Tanya says:

    Well well well another quite good example of how scumpool fans react when they find out that there are other good teams in the world with more fans such as myself.

    I can only imagine your mutilated reaction face to the Berba hattrick..

    I’ve always liked Torres because of his national campaign rather than Liverpool and I’ve always hated Gerrard for the diving f*** he is.

  20. liam says:

    and u call liverpool fans bad you just cant take it that we own and ur team sux u said that gerrard is bad wat the fuc!!! he could own ur ass as if u were that crappy player u were talking bout he dosent dive ur team does he is a true soccor player hes not in it 4 the money hes in it 4 the fans, the enjoyment and the exceleration of playing his fave sport so dont evan fucing think of calling my fave idol a diver u idiot wat team do u go 4 lol wouldnt b surprised if they were on the bottom of the ladder ha ha ha dont say that bout gerrard in this liveerpulian place go fuc of1!!
