Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas has declared he will not rest until he makes Fernando Torres one of the best strikers in the world again.

Torres is in danger of being branded the most expensive flop in football history, having scored just five goals for Chelsea since his £50million January move from Liverpool. Reports this week claimed Chelsea had already lost patience with the Spain striker but Villas-Boas on Friday insisted Torres was "not for sale at any price", now or next summer.

Indeed, the Blues boss insisted he was on a mission to ensure Torres came good, even if the striker's struggles continued until this time next season. Villas-Boas said: "I think so. This is a talent that is never in doubt. So we have to be very, very patient and I'm sure that we can turn this around."
