Fernando Torres is hoping he can repay Roman Abramovich by winning the Champions League with Chelsea.

The mega-rich Russian splashed out £50 million to land Torres in January and has yet to reap the rewards from Chelsea's record signing.

Torres, however, believes the Blues can realise the dream of their owner this summer by going all the way in Europe's premier club competition.

"For me, it has been a massive test of confidence," said Torres.

"The fact that Roman Abramovich has paid that much money demonstrates that he wants the best team possible.

"He has ambition and he is not going to give in until he has won the Champions League, which is his dream."

Chelsea face Manchester United in the quarter-final of the Champions League - with the first leg taking place next Wednesday - in what could prove to be an epic battle between the two Barclays Premier League rivals.


Torres, however, already has his sights set on the final of the competition - which will be staged at Wembley on May 28 - and has identified Real Madrid has his ideal opponents.

"I would love to play in the European Cup final, with Chelsea, against a Spanish side," added the 27-year-old.

"Real Madrid are the favourites to win, although it is not going to be easy.

"That is more 60-40. The Whites are going to have to play really well to beat Tottenham, who have some great players like Modric, Bale and Lennon."
