The Premier League transfer record was smashed to smithereens in January when Fernando Torres completed a £50 million move from Liverpool to Chelsea and it is currently the Merseyside club who will be feeling they got the better end of the bargain.
Torres has struggled for form ever since the Spaniard made his debut at Stamford Bridge against his former club and the 27-year-old managed just one goal, with his performances in pre-season friendly matches hardly suggesting that the worm has turned.
Even so, the striker insists that he will come good under Andre Villas-Boas this season and is confident of finding the net sooner rather than later.
He said: “I’m 27. I don’t forget to score goals. I will score. We are all trying to be in the best form for the new season. There are big expectations for the new season. I’ve been here six months and can see the winning mentality Chelsea have. My form is OK. We have a new manager and it’s time to get going.”
Reports suggest that Villas-Boas will employ a 4-3-3 formation this coming season which will see Torres rotated with Didier Drogba and that will hardly be appealing to the former, who will be looking for a run of games so that he can build up confidence levels.
