Cesc Fabregas backed by Fernando Torres to shine at Chelsea

Published 1 Comments

Chelsea striker Fernando Torres believes Cesc Fabregas can make a big impact at Stamford Bridge if, as expected, the Spanish midfielder completes his £30m transfer from Barcelona this summer. Fabregas is on the verge of making a shock move to the west London outfit after accepting the English club's lucrative offer.

In an interview with Movistar, Torres was asked whether Fabregas - a Manchester United target - will prove to be a good signing for Chelsea, to which the striker replied: "Great players are always good signings. [We] already know Cesc is a player who knows the [Premier League] and was always one of the best players when he was at Arsenal."

Torres believes Chelsea do not currently possess a player like Fabregas, who is being sold by Barcelona three years after returning from to his boyhood club following an eight-year spell with Arsenal.

However, Chelsea are also on the verge of completing the signing of Atletico Madrid striker Diego Costa, with reports claiming the arrival of the Brazil-born Spain international will lead to the departures of both Torres and Demba Ba.

Torres, however, is keen to stay at Chelsea and prove his worth after rejecting the chance to join Serie A giants Inter Milan. But the 30-year-old may not have a say in the matter if Mourinho deems him surplus to requirements.

There is a chance, of course, that Mourinho has signed Fabregas and Costa in a last-ditch attempt to bring the best out of Torres. But with the Chelsea boss also keen to sign Bayern Munich striker Mario Mandzukic, it seems increasingly likely that Torres's days at Stamford Bridge are numbered.
