Torres' £50m Chelsea deal in doubt

Fernando Torres' World Cup final injury could scupper a potential £50 million move from Liverpool to Premier League champions Chelsea, according to reports in the UK press.

Torres, who picked up a World Cup winners' medal following Spain's 1-0 victory against Netherlands on Sunday night, pulled up in extra-time clutching his hamstring and is expected to miss the first month of the domestic season.

The Liverpool striker only recently returned to fitness following a knee injury and was relegated to the Spanish bench for the final in South Africa due to a loss of form.

Torres, 26, has long been linked with a move to Stamford Bridge and Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich gave the green light for what would be the biggest domestic transfer in Premier League history last month.

However, the increasing frequency of Torres' injuries, along with the Spaniard's apparent loss of form, means the deal could be dead.
