Spanish striker Fernando Torres admitted he was considering his future after missing on the starting line-up in the Champions League final, and a summer exit now looks like a realistic option.
Nevertheless, with not too many clubs willing to delve deep into their pockets to sign the out-of-form striker, William Hill has him at 4/11 to start the next season at Stamford Bridge. On the other hand, the Spaniard is 2/1 to leave the club this summer.
“Torres is reportedly far from happy at Chelsea ad has revealed he would be open to a transfer, but would there be any club willing to part with around £50 million to sign a misfiring striker?” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.
His boss Roberto Di Matteo has seen his chances of getting the job on permanent basis increase after the Champions League victory, and he can be backed at 1/2 at the moment. Fabio Capello is 5/2 to beat the Italian to the post, whereas both Pep Guardiola are Jose Mourinho are 8/1.
“Despite winning the trophy most coveted by Roman Abramovich, he still remains relatively backable at 1/2 and he finds himself uncertain of his future at Chelsea,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.
England boss Roy Hodgson has stated that he would like the Chelsea players to continue their form into the European Championship, and John Terry, Gary Cahill, Ashley Cole and Frank Lampard will be hoping to start the first match against France.
