Man City to Release Surprise Transfer Offer for Torres
[one_fourth last=”no”][/one_fourth] Man City are said to be eager on signing Chelsea attacker Fernando Torres according to FootballDirectNews. Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini is set to sell Bosnian forward Edin Dzeko and summer season signing Stevan Jovetic, who has encountered injuries all year, could be sacrificed as the Chilean seems to conduct a summer shake-up.
Sergio Aguero and Alvaro Negredo will continue to act as Pellegrini’s first option strike-pairing but the Man City manager will search to supplement the pair with seasoned Spaniard Torres.
The 29-year old cost Chelsea €60m and has come nowhere near justifying the British transfer record outlay and is now anything of a bit-part player under manager Jose Mourinho.
Torres has began just 13 Premier League games this season and his overall tally of 19 goals in 102 top tier performances for the Blues is fairly woeful and one would consider a Stamford Bridge departure is on the cards.
Nevertheless it seems more likely that the previous Liverpool man would seek a transfer to a club that could offer him frequent 1st team football and a move back to La Liga seems more likely than a move to Man City that would entail exchanging one bench for another.
