Chelsea striker teases supporters with Liverpool transfer revelation

Fernando Torres says Liverpool fans don't know the whole story behind his January transfer move from Chelsea.

The Spanish striker achieved heroic status during his time at Anfield, becoming the fastest player to score 50 goals for the club.

However, after an inconsistent run of form, Torres moved to Chelsea for £50 million, a fee which broke the British transfer record, and with it plenty of Liverpool hearts.

"The Liverpool fans have only paid attention to what the club made them see and they don't know the true story of my transfer to Chelsea," Torres said.

"That's why I don’t hold any grudges; they will always be special to me."

Torres' comments come ahead of the weekend clash between the two clubs at Stamford Bridge, a reverse of last season's fixture which saw Torres make his Chelsea debut.

Liverpool are enduring something of a transitional period, having brought in seven new players over the summer, and the 27-year-old says it will take time for the new players to gel.

"[Liverpool] are a team in transition and the change doesn't come overnight," he added.

"They need time. They have made a significant investment and, like in any project, they need to establish themselves.

"We can't allow ourselves the luxury of losing any more points. It will be a very special game and atmosphere, too, without a doubt."
