Reports this morning suggested the signing of 50 million pounds of Chelsea are downloaded in the new year after a disappointing 12 months during which he scored five goals in 35 games.

But a spokesman for the club rubbished such today suggestion: “the story is nonsense.” “Fernando Torres is still part of our plans in the long term”.

Torres, who has fought for a place in the initial lineup of Chelsea since the arrival of Andre Villas-Boas is likely that it will grant more playing time come January will be when team-mate and fellow forward Didier Drogba on international duty at the African Cup of Nations.

The opportunity to lead the attack of Chelsea will be more driven by the impending departure of Nicolas Anelka, who was signed earlier this week by the Chinese side Shanghai Shenhua.

Form of Torres since his arrival at Stamford Bridge has been relentlessly criticized. Following his transfer was 13 games without a goal as Miró have broken his duck, proceeded to go to another nine games without scoring.

And although it has not started for the club since their 5-3 defeat to Arsenal in October, Villas Boas has publicly supported the striker insisting that he was worth every penny of the 50 million pounds the club passed over him.

“In a race or a person’s life, has times best and worst moments,” the Portuguese Manager said last month. “At this time, highlights of Fernando in terms of features were the days of Liverpool.” This does not mean that the days do not reach this club, and this does not mean that, at the moment, it does for the team, because he is.

“Isolate the past four months with the goals scored [four in seven games in all competitions] and is not bad.” A striker is not there to put the ball in the bottom of the network. “He is there to make and create.”
