In a very strange turn of events, it seems the bookies have taken so much money on Fernando Torres to go to Chelsea that some bookies have stopped taking bets! VitalFootball’s Chelsea site said this afternoon: Odds have gone in from 2/1 to 1/3 with some bookies that Fernando Torres will move to Chelsea this summer. PaddyPower have also been reported to have stopped taking bets altogether.
What does this mean for the Spanish striker? But Roy Hodgson seems convinced that Torres will still be a Liverpool player next season. He said today: “He has told us that he is looking forward to Monday, to getting back to work and looking forward to playing for Liverpool next season. That is what I know so other reports, I would suggest, are erroneous.” It’s all getting very interesting now.
