The Fernando Torres Saga

Yesterday we witnessed arguably the biggest transfer of the season; Fernando Torres leaving Liverpool for Chelsea on a 5 and a half year contract worth reportedly £50 million.

Liverpool fans are of course, outraged. This is reminiscent of the LeBron James transfer from Cleveland to Miami in the NBA. They shouldn’t be though. Fernando is a man of his own life, and knows what is best for his career. A football club like Liverpool FC will always be the destination club for top players like Torres. The fact of the matter is, he was fantastic in the four years he spent on Merseyside. Now is the time for Luis Suarez and Andy Carroll to begin a new successful era in Liverpool FC.

What does this now mean for the title race? Chelsea for one, just got a whole lot of extra ammo and are firmly back in the race. Now whether they can convert that ammo into wins is now the million dollar question. With the likes of Cech, Drogba, Malouda & Torres, it is the perfect recipe for a title but whether they work well to do so or do a Real Madrid is yet to be known.

And as if it was meant to be, Liverpool and Chelsea have a face-off on Sunday. It is no doubt a heated encounter in the making and this rivalry is only just beginning. One thing is for sure, the title race just got a whole lot more interesting.

    the transfer was £50mil his contract wasn’t 50mil! Think a major factor you missed is it broke the British transfer record. I don’t like you have used a altered picture when a picture has been released by the club and think you just scratched the surface of the article. What about Carroll becoming the most expensive English player of all time…which is very questionable but lets give him time. Plus are you American by any chance? Think if you use sports comparisons you should keep it to the sport your talking about. I don’t follow basketball and have no idea who your going on about. Not a good article all in all…seems very rushed and could of done more researched into this abit more.
