Torres is a fantastic striker, blessed with pace and strength. He is good in the air and has scored a record 33 goals in his first season in the premiership. Whether Tom Hicks, the Liverpool co-owner be willing to sell given the £25m profit on him in just a year remains to be seen. Still £50m is an absurd amount for him given the fact that he has scored more than 90% of his goals at home.
2.) Mark Hughes has emerged as one of the favourites to replace the vacant Chelsea manager’s post. He is a former Chelsea player, who has proved that he has the credentials to work at a top club after doing a sterling job at Blackburn Rovers.

But whether he can handle the big pressure that comes with when managing Chelsea and maintain a good relationship with the owner remains to be seen.
3.) Frank Rijkaard, who is without a job has been contacted by Frank Arnesen, the sporting director and also his friend about taking over the vacant managerial role. He is expected to be interviewed as early as next week.
