Liverpool legend Mark Lawrenson believes the sale of Fernando Torres will go down as the 'sale of the century' after the Spaniard's £50 million move to Chelsea.
Torres struggled to make an impact at Chelsea following his move from Anfield, scoring just once as Chelsea limped to a second place finish in the Barclays Premier League.
And Lawrenson believes Liverpool pulled off a masterstroke in selling Torres, with Luis Suarez having joined 24 hours earlier.
"I do feel the sale of Torres may turn out to be the sale of the century," he said.
"I just feel there is something about Torres in his body language and his make up. He has always been the main man at the clubs he's been at and I look at him and he's not the same player."
"The sale has allowed Liverpool to replace him and rebuild and the American owners have brought more players in as a statement of intent that the club is heading in the right direction again.
"When the fax came through to say Torres had gone and it was £50m, I would be surprised if Liverpool didn't have a party."
Since his sale, Suarez played a vital role Liverpool's revival following their worst start ever to a Premier League campaign.
