Chelsea set to make £37m loss on star as Valencia prepare swoop?

Fernando Torres’ infamously poor Chelsea career could come to an abrupt end this summer, as Valencia’s prospective new owner is keen to make him his first marquee signing, according to the Metro.

The paper reports that Singapore businessman Peter Lim, who is close to completing a take over of the La Liga outfit, is eyeing Torres as the ideal man to kick start the new regime.

It’s also believed that Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has ultimately resigned himself to cashing in on the man he bought from Liverpool for £50million, as he has accepted that the striker will never achieve what was expected of him.

Torres could be available for as little as £13million, meaning the Blues would be taking a loss of £37million if they were to consent to a sale.

It’s thought that the Spain international would be open to a move back to his native country, where he began his career with Atletico Madrid.

As of yet Lim doesn’t have control of Valencia, but that could well change before the summer transfer window as he remains intent on completing the purchase.
