Fernando Torres is going to face tough competition if Jose Mourinho decides to keep him at Chelsea for yet another season.
When it comes to the Spaniard, many different interpretations arise.
The incredible superstar, the world-class striker, El Nino, and the Chelsea flop.
There is no doubt that Torres is gifted - he was considered the most dangerous striker in the world in his Anfield days.
But just like Liverpool, Torres cannot focus on past glories, instead concentrating on the present and future.
He insists that he wishes to play under Mourinho, as he believes the 'Happy One' can bring out his best form.
"I want to stay, I want to honour the contract I signed, keep winning titles and I'd like to be the best in my position," Torres said in an interview with Spanish newspaper AS.
But how many chances can one man get?
Torres was given copious amounts of chances under four different managers. His form is as unpredictable as the British weather.
And it seems the only thing keeping the Chelsea fans from turning on him is the hope that he will provide for them what he provided for the fans at Liverpool.
With Mourinho intrepid for success, Torres will need to impress early. The Spaniard has the chance to do this in the Confederations Cup.
Scoring a handful of goals and providing a few assists in the competition will dilute any hesitation for Mourinho to incorporate Torres in what is set to be a deadly English force for the next few seasons.
However, Mourinho is recognised to favour players that aren’t relatively well-known over a media induced 'big-name' player.
Look how well Mesut Ozil’s favouritism turned out over Kaka at Real Madrid.
This leads the question to whether Mourinho will select Romelu Lukaku over Torres and Demba Ba.
Chelsea desperately need a lethal striker, and it seems Edinson Cavani or Hulk will provide that lethality - if Chelsea can beat away other offers from opposing clubs - but unless El Nino impresses, and impresses soon, then Lukaku should be given the chance that Torres continuously gets.
