Welcome to another edition of 360 reactions. This is a series where I talk about and give my opinion on rumours. Our latest subject involves the rumour of Torres back to his old club, Atletico.
What’s new on the news for Torres? Well, the latest is he is once again linked to return to his old club, Atletico, in the summer, so that Chelsea can make way for a striker signing coming this summer. This is not the first time he has been linked back to his old club.
What can happen from this deal? Well, Costa has been linked with Chelsea this season. The striker has been on fire this season for Atletico, scoring goals and is currently the 3rd top goalscorer in Champions league. Torres has been out of form since he joined the club and he has never been able to repay the 50 million that was spent to bring him to the club. Selling Torres to Atletico could involve a deal of 20 million + Torres for Costa.
How can this benefit us? Torres has been finding it hard to hit the back of the net this season, his performance is bad compared to last season (although he played more games). Eto’o has already hit double figures this season and is most of the time picked ahead of Torres. His wages are high and selling him now could give benefits, rather than waiting for his contract to finish.
He scores when his team needs him the most. That’s been his trait ever since he joined the club. He was the one that won the corner from which we equalized against Bayern in the UCL final in 2012. He scored against Benefica last year in Europa league final.
What’s your say on these rumours? Feedback is appreciated.
