Fernando Torres Has Been Wanting To Leave Liverpool For Over A Year

Liverpool striker Fernando Torres has reportedly wanted to make a move to Chelsea for over a year.

The Reds recently rejected a bid from the west London club - thought to be in the region of £35 million - to acquire the services of the Spaniard. UK has since exclusively revealed that the Merseysiders have asked for Nicolas Anelka to be thrown in as part of a £50m move that would see the former Atletico Madrid man switch allegiances from Anfield to Stamford Bridge.

The story is too old to be commented.

Torres hasn't said anything so can't be trusted.

He doesnt say he want to stay either. I guess he wanted to leave, but now he changes his mind... New manager, Liverpool wins again- and Torres has started to score. Why leave for another club in crisis??

Chelseas crisis is over now. I think they are gonna bee hard the rest of the season. It`s not far up to United, and United are not playing well. Their luck soon has to turn...

And if Chelsea buys Torres then they have done a important deal.

"United are not playing well"

correction - united are not playing well for the first 45minz of the game.

in the last 45minz its like a different team comes out to play. i only worry if united are playing a top side like real Madrid or Barcelona- if they were to go 2 goals down in the first half, 2nd half wont be enough for a comeback.

Yes and as you says: When playing against the big clubs it`s not enough to only play well 2nd half! And ManU has showed some weaknesses not only in the FA cup but also in the league.

But they have a great skills: takeing 3 points, even on bad days.

It's a pointless comment coming from someone as biased as you.

If he has been "wanting to leave for over a year", then why the f**k didn't he go at the start of the summer when there were a lot more clubs interested in signing him?

KingsCross3962d ago

Pretty sure its bullshit. He was begging to go to Liverpool. I dont think hes been wanting to leave, but I am pretty sure he has wanted Liverpool to buy some good players. He doesnt want to play in an average Liverpool, but a good!

Mozilla893962d ago

I think he wanted to go in the summer but Liverpool asked him to give them some time to buy new players and hire a new manager. So he agreed and gave them half a season and look where they are now...

I'll tell you what happened :
~Club came knocking
~He wanted to leave
~He even said to David Villa he's leaving
~He came back to Liverpool
~The board promised him with new "major" signings that proves they're still an ambitious club
~NOTHING new happened.
~And now he wants to leave
~Tomorrow he'll be convinced to stay.

Ok. Lets see if the master is right:)

That's pretty much correct mate. He wants to leave to win trophies or at least be able to challenge for them but he can see that Liverpool are a couple of seasons away from it. Although if he stays and we manage to get a CL spot then he may reconsider, hopefully.
