Chelsea have completed the signing of Fernando Torres from Liverpool for a UK record fee of £50million. Torres has reportedly signed a deal to stay at Stamford Bridge until 2016.
Chelsea originally enquired about Torres in the summer, however despite the overtures from the club, the Spaniard elected to stay on Merseyside. However with their season collapsing, he submitted a transfer request in order to fulfil his quest for trophies.
Torres started his career at Atletico Madrid and made 214 appearances scoring 82 goals. He joined Liverpool in 2007, playing 102 times in which he hit the back of the net on 65 occasions. Torres has also scored regularly for Spain, notching 26 goals in 82 matches.
We at TheChels.org would like to welcome Fernando to Chelsea, and hope that he can step his game up a level, and help Chelsea onto further glory.
