A friend told me and I had assumed there was an article about it, but now that I look it up, I'm disappointed that it's just mentioned in an article about Atletico :( But anyway...

"Monaco are also looking at Torres and would be able to match his £175,000-a-week Chelsea wages"

Lmao two clubs fighting for Torres? Or has Jigsaw captured them and they are fighting to not sign Torres but the loser has to sign Torres? Fuck me what a load of shite. Anyway just sell him, even if its for 50k, fucking hell.

They've really gone down hill, especially this summer. I used to consider them reliable, but social media is killing all the 'reliable' media.

I was searching in Current Squad the Torres thread to see if there is any news regarding him but couldn't find his thread so i decided to party only to notice 10 minutes later the thread was here :ph34r2:

Has to be him. Either a loan or a transfer. I can't see jose going into the next season with costa-torres-Dd as his option. Its suicidal.

I have a feeling that Torres will leave and Jose will choose Drogba to replace him which makes perfect sense as Costa and Lukaku will get the chance to play more often.

A strikeforce of Costa-Lukaku and Drogba looks really deadly. Hope this happens.

You do know that most of the revenue from shirt sales goes straight to Adidas right? We only get a quite small percentage of the actual profit. So his marketability is nothing huge.

fair points, but reckon you are all missing the other aspects of marketing: market penetration and brand recognition.

When Torres fans in country X wear Torres jersey, they are also promoting Chelsea as a club as well as its affiliates.

Similar, but not nearly as big as Park at United. As good as Park was in defense, he was never good enough to play for United IMO. Sounds familiar?

Park never cost United £50m and £185k a week though. Also Park never had the pressure of being a 'star player' at United either. Park's marketability and brand was being used to penetrate the Asian market, and it did so very successfully. Torres' marketability is useful for what exactly? He was a global superstar when he arrived here but what is he useful for now? Some deluded fanboys/girls? Some Spanish fans? Like you said, it isn't anywhere near the marketability that Park offered for United.

What I think it is - it's in Torres' contract. In his contract I think we agreed that he'll be one of the faces of the club (hence why the always mention him in interviews in big signings + how his face I plastered on all of our ad campaigns and around Stamford Bridge); so unfortunately we have to oblige the terms of the contract. I seriously can't wait for the day his contract runs out/we sell him. He's a leech.
