Fernando Torres will inform Jose Mourinho of his intention to stay at Stamford Bridge, and believes the Chelsea manager will be able to summon his best form when they begin working together.

The future of Torres as a Chelsea player remains uncertain following the appointment of Mourinho, and the former Real Madrid boss is set to speak each member of his squad when he officially begins duties next month.

Chelsea have been linked with a summer transfer move for Napoli striker Edinson Cavani, and the Blues are reported to have offered Torres plus £34 million in the hope of claiming the signature of the Uruguay international.

Torres, however, is committed to Chelsea and is hopeful he can establish himself as the club's first-choice striker - with the Spain international believing Mourinho is the perfect coach to restore him to former glories.

"He will explain to me what he thinks and I will tell him what I feel," Torres told AS.

"I want to stay, to honour the contract I signed, keep doing things right and I want to be the number one in my position again. 

"Moreover, I think there is no better place than Chelsea to do that, especially with the arrival of Mourinho. I just think that every striker that has played with him has enjoyed success."

Torres has scored only 15 Premier League goals for Chelsea since his British record transfer from Liverpool in January 2011, although the Spaniard did show glimpses of his Anfield form last season.

The 29-year-old netted 22 times in all competitions - eight of which came in the Europa League as Chelsea claimed glory.
