Fernando Torres Chelsea future in doubt

Fernando Torres has done little to dampen increasing speculation over his future at Chelsea FC.
Speaking to Guillem Balague of The Times and Sky Sports, Torres expressed his deep disappointment at being left out of the starting XI of the Munich UCL final showpiece.
Speaking candidly, Torres states: ‘I’ve felt like they treated me in a way that I didn’t expect because the role I’ve had this season is not for me nor is it the one I expected to play when I came here’.
Torres will join his Chelsea team-mates on a celebratory open top bus tour in the West London area today (Sunday) and will be meeting with Chelsea officials later in the week.
There are believed to be a number of suitors in the English Premier League, Spain’s La Liga and Serie A of Italy.
