Sorry Fernando, but your time is up at Chelsea
Sorry Fernando, but your time is up at Chelsea.

1. Fernando Torres

Chelsea fans must have thought Fernando Torres had the guile, finishing ability and big-game temperament to be Didier Drogba's long-term successor at Stamford Bridge when he signed for £50m in 2011, but is a pale comparison to the star who lit up Anfield prior to that stunning switch.

Torres has only managed a frankly woeful 19 goals in 105 Premier League appearances for the Blues though, which despite the trophies coming thick and fast during his time in West London is a very disappointing contribution.

Blues boss Jose Mourinho looks to have run out of patience with a player who continues to work tirelessly in search of former glories, but surely needs either a fresh challenge or a step down in level to recapture even a glimmer of his true worth before a glittering career draws to a close.
