Chelsea have completed an unsuccessful round of offering former footballer Fernando Torres to charity shops. Stamford Bridge boss Andre Villas-Boas claimed the Spanish international was even hidden under a large collection outside a shop door late at night, only for the owner of the store to smell a strong whiff of failure from his bedroom and demand the removal of the striker.
The London club have continually denied claims they are looking to offload Torres but sources close to the side say Roman Abramovich is now targeting farmlands and warehouses to see if they’ll allow Torres a place in the corner somewhere. Another possible option continues to be Doncaster Rovers.
A charity spokesperson claimed ‘whilst we strive to make use of all collection donations, Fernando Torres would only really get in the way. He’s proved that at Chelsea and to be honest, I’m not sure I could stand his sad puppy dog face sitting beside me begging for a start. It’s just distracting.’
