Torres wants to stay at Chelsea

15 June 2013 16:21

Fernando Torres is relishing a new challenge at Chelsea under Jose Mourinho and hopes to remain at Stamford Bridge for years to come.

The 29-year-old has been linked with a move away from the Premier League club after never really hitting top form following his 50 million-pound transfer from Liverpool in January 2011.

However, the Spaniard - who is currently on international duty at the FIFA Confederations Cup - has dispelled rumours of a departure by insisting he cannot wait to play for Mourinho, who has re-joined Chelsea following three seasons with Real Madrid.

Torres is aware of the Portuguese's impressive CV, and is excited by the manager's claims that he would make him a better striker if he was to remain at the club.

"His words motivate me," he told As.

"He's said he doesn't want to speak with the players that are in this tournament until it's over. We will meet soon, he will explain what he thinks of me and my situation, and I'll tell him what I think.

"I want to continue (at Chelsea), I want to complete the contract I signed and continue winning trophies and I would like to be the best in the world in my position again. There's no better place to be than at Chelsea with Mourinho."

Torres will hope to be selected for Spain's opening Confederations Cup match against Uruguay on Sunday.
