Chelsea striker Fernando Torres states that he is happy to stay at Chelsea despite rumours that he is about to be sold by the club if they sign Wayne Rooney from Manchester United. Chelsea have been linked with a move for Rooney in the last few months.

The England striker is also at the peak of his career unlike Torres, who continues to be a shadow of his Liverpool days. He may have scored 23 goals for Chelsea last season, but new Chelsea manager José Mourinho does not seem to be a big fan of his play.

He was left out of the starting line-up against Manchester United a week ago and it is extremely doubtful that he will start against Bayern Munich in the UEFA Super cup. Mourinho went with the winger Andre Schurrle as the striker against United, which showed his lack of faith in the 29-year-old. Torres, though, has welcomed Chelsea’s links with Wayne Rooney and says that he will be a great signing for the club. He has also do not possible departure from Stamford Bridge. Since making the move to West London, Torres has won numerous titles including the Champions league and the Europa league.

The 29-year-old still has a few years left in his Chelsea contract. “We have been working for only a short time together. People respect him very much and you trust him that he works without fail. I have never felt this way before with any coach. Chelsea always wants the best players and Rooney is one of them. I admire him and it would be great to play with him,” said Torres ahead of the UEFA Super cup match on Friday night. Chelsea will be hoping to win this tournament, which they lost to Atletico Madrid last season when Roberto di Matteo was the manager.
