Fernando Torres has insisted he has no intention of leaving Chelsea before his current contract – which has three years left to run – comes to an end, Sky
Torres moved to Stamford Bridge from Liverpool in January 2011, costing the Blues a record £50m, but the Spaniard has not found goals as easy to come by in west London as he initially did on Merseyside.
After netting 81 times in 142 appearances for the Reds, Torres has endured a series of dry spells with his current employers, scoring 32 goals in 124 games, but going six games between early November and early December without netting, and later eight games between December and January before troubling the scorers.
Torres’ struggles have led to suggestions he could be sent back to former club Atletico Madrid, potentially as part of the deal that takes Radamel Falcao in the opposite direction, but Torres is adamant he will not leave Chelsea before his contract expires.
“I have many things still to give to this club,” Torres said. “I have three more years contract so I’m expecting to stay at least three years.
“We won the Champions League last season. Hopefully we can win the Europa League this one. It is our priority as well as finishing in the top four. We want to go back to the Champions League next season and keep winning trophies.”
The 29-year-old added: “I think we have a great squad and a young squad to build on. We are sure that we are a great team and we want to show everyone. I would like to be involved.”
