Chelsea fail in Torres bid: Report

Chelsea have had a £28 million bid for Spanish teenager Fernando Torres rejected by Atletico Madrid, according to Spanish newspapers.

Torres, a 19-year-old who plays for Spain Under-21s, is one of the hottest properties in the country after scoring 13 goals last term for Atletico.

The bid, according to the Madrid-based Marca sports paper, was made by Chelsea's new Russian owner Roman Abramovich directly to Atletico's directors a couple of days ago.

Abramovich has been searching for a top class striker with Inter Milan's Christian Vieri, Arsenal's Frenchman Thierry Henry and Barcelona's Patrick Kluivert among his targets.
