Fernando Torres has dismissed reports he is set to leave Stamford Bridge this summer, following the arrival of Jose Mourinho as manager.
The 29-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to Napoli, that would once again see him reunited with Rafa Benitez. Signing a five-year-deal when he joined the club in 2011, Torres maintains that he is looking forward to working with Mourinho, dismissing any suggestion he could be leaving London.
“I’m looking forward to the chance of working with Jose,” Torres explained. “It is the same every summer, there is talk and rumors every day. When I signed for Chelsea I signed for five-and-a-half years and I want to be there for all of that. I know it’s going to be hard, but I’m happy and look forward to that,” the striker said. “He is the best for what we can expect at Chelsea. Everyone who loves the club is so excited. A lot of fans will be so happy.”
Torres was speaking in advance of Spain’s two friendlies on US soil.
