I guess the big problem is he has 3.5 years left of his £185k a week deal! That is an astonishing amount of money. Lets be honest, he won't earn over £100k a week anywhere else bar perhaps Russia, China, Qatar etc. I fully expect him to be a makeweight in a deal to bring in Falcao this summer with all sorts of blurry numbers being tied up to hide huge wage pay offs etc. I think Liverpool is the only possible premier league destination for him but it is a rank outside chance to be fair, probably 50/1 or more!
He will definitely stay at Chelsea for the remainder of the season, he and Rafa are interim manager and interim striker, perhaps they will go off to their next jobs together!
He's a bargain. If you amortise his transfer fee over the two years and add in his pocket money, it comes to less than £3m a goal. Or £69m for the goal against Barcelona, £50k for the opener against Arsenal and the rest for free.
Anyway, isn't West Ham the traditional dumping ground for rubbish that no-one wants?

West Ham couldn't afford him. We could though..
However I feel we'll look elsewhere as it goes against our buy them young sell them at a profit ethos.
Torres wouldn't get any resale value.. sure if he were to recapture his form again at LFC he may move us up the table a bit but I doubt he'd win us our 1st EPL title.
I'd love to have Torres at LFC to see what Suarez & Torres could do together as I feel they'd compliment each other well.
