Torres to replace Soldado at Valencia?

Published Add your comment

Since his move to Chelsea, Fernando Torres has never hit the form that saw him become one of the most feared strikers in Europe. He may however be offered a chance to revive his career next season with a transfer back to his native Spain.

Fellow countryman Roberto Soldado has recently agreed a £26 million move Tottenham subject to a medical and this leaves Valencia without their top goal scorer from last season. 

Valencia would appear to be on the market for a replacement striker. Torres could be their man. 

During the transfer window Torres' future has constantly been in question with Chelsea looking to chase down Wayne Rooney for £40 million and with the return of Romelu Lukaku who has impressed during pre-season, scoring four in three games. 

During the speculation Torres has constantly reiterated that he does not want to leave the Europa League champions and his happy fighting for a place in the squad. 

Even though Torres has said he won't leave rumours over the Spaniard's future have refused to die. 

Valencia are likely to be able to sign Torres for around £25 million, with Roman Abramovich realising he must accept a huge loss if the player is to leave Chelsea.

A potential stumbling block is that Chelsea pay Torres £175,000-a-week and it would not make sense for him to take a wage cut by moving to Valencia.

With the way money is thrown around in today's football market who knows if Valencia would match his wages or not.
