“The move to bring the Spanish World Cup and European Championship winner to London from Liverpool for an undisclosed fee was completed on Monday evening.”
They are not revealing the price Abramovich had to sacrifice, but due to his £50 mil. buy-out clause in his contract, they couldn’t have received less, they were not willing to give him up for anything less. So Torres’ transfer is now British record transfer fee.
It is assumed the Reds’ fans are furious but from the statement Torres made for Chelsea nothing except sheer joy is sensed, having no remorse he joined the rivals.
“I am very happy with my transfer to Chelsea and I am looking forward very much to helping my new team-mates this season and for many years to come,” said Torres.
“Having played against Chelsea many times since coming to England, and in some very big games I will never forget, I know there are many great players here and I will work hard to win a place in the team. I hope I can score some important goals for the supporters to enjoy this season.”
Torres will probably have his debut against, guess who, Liverpool.
