Chelsea boss Villas-Boas insists Torres is not for sale

Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas has denied reports that the club are looking to cash in on misfiring striker Fernando Torres, according to BBC Sport.

Torres has scored just five goals in 35 games since joining from Liverpool for a British record transfer fee of £50 million in January.

With Didier Drogba and Daniel Sturridge both seemingly ahead of him in the Stamford Bridge pecking order, there had been suggestions that Torres would be moving on in the near future.

However, Villas-Boas rejected these claims, and told reporters in a pre-match press conference: “It is not true, he is not available at any price.

“We are pretty sure when Fernando is called up he will respond with the quality and talent he has. We have to make the best decisions for the team.”
