Chelsea, Barcelona compete for TorresMay 18th, 2010 - 7:07 pm ICT by ANI
London, May 18 (ANI): Chelsea is facing strong competition from Barcelona in signing on Liverpool striker Fernando Torres.
“The Blues are expected to make a massive 50 million pounds move for the 26-year-old striker this month,” The Sun reports.
Meanwhile, Barcelona is set to dump their 40 million pounds unfit striker Zlatan Ibrahimovich after a season and use the money to pay their bid for Torres.
They hope to pair him with fellow Spanish striker David Villa at Nou Camp. The deadly duo work brilliantly together on the international stage, having won the Euro 2008.
Chelsea’s decision to offer Torres a staggering 190,000 pounds a week and will lessen the club’s wage bill by selling the likes of Deco, Ricardo Carvalho, Michael Ballack, Juliano Belletti and may be Joe Cole. (ANI)
