Yeah, the wage is a big problem of course. But still, any price would've been good to sell him. So total cost wise, Milan could still have made a pretty good deal. Wouldn't be surprised if Torres becomes a valuable player again in Serie A.

It wasn't a case of what price we got for him, I think we would have accepted peanuts. Selling him would have been difficult because why would Torres agree to a move to take maybe £75,000 a week, when he could stay here for two years on more than double that? It was an impossible sale.

I don't see why me remark is so dumb. We are still paying his enormous wage now. We might as well breach his contract then and pay off the two years. Same principle.

And I know we've been trying to sell him but maybe we've still been asking too much for him then. As I said, any price would've been good, even a symbolical pound. Just to get rid of that immense salary that's not leading to anything.

It probably was.

I can see why Torres wouldn't want to see his salary cut in half, but if there's any pride left in him as a football player, he should've settled for about 30% less and try to get his career going again. To rot on the bench for two years is no way to end a career for a player like Torres.

But for him the loan is obviously a brilliant deal, still gets paid the same money and can try to relaunch his career. For Chelsea though, I think it's a pretty bad deal. I think we shouldn't have accepted it. Better to keep him at the club in that case, until he grows tired of sitting on the bench and who knows maybe if a few players get injured he might even come in handy every now and then. At least there would still be a reason why we're paying him in that case.

We arn't playing all of his wages, we tried to sell him and in what world would paying his contract off be a good idea? it would cost between £16-18m!!!

Just a very bad match with Chelsea. He still appears eager though whenever he gets to play. Good start at Milan could see him launched again imo. And then we'll all be saying: why the hell couldn't he do that for us???!! :)

He lost his attributes that made him so great, he looked lost for Liverpool under Roy before we even signed him. He's crap for Spain aswell.

imo he is another case of a player who lost it early due to injuries, ala Kaka and Essien.
