Torres edges closer to Blues switch

Published Add your comment

Fernando Torres was tonight on the brink of completing a record-breaking transfer to Chelsea after Liverpool lined up a replacement for the striker.

Torres was expected to wrap up a reported £50million deadline-day switch to Stamford Bridge in time for the 11pm closure of the window.

And the Blues could yet take their spending spree tonight to more than £75million after reports from Portugal suggested they had dramatically resurrected a £25million-plus move for Benfica defender David Luiz.
