Chelsea are set to take a £30 million hit and sell Fernando Torres this summer.

The Blues want to get rid of their record £50m buy even though he has 22 goals this term, his best season at Stamford Bridge.

Torres has netted just seven times in the Premier League, the last coming against Aston Villa in December.

And that is why Chelsea hope today’s match against Everton will be his final one. Overall, Torres has 34 goals in 130 appearances since signing from Liverpool in January, 2011.

That equals more than £2m a goal when you add his £22m pay to the £50m transfer fee.

Incoming boss Jose Mourinho wants a new-look attack and hopes to splash £70m on Napoli star Edinson Cavani and Bayer Leverkusen’s Andre Schurrle.

Chelsea’s willingness to sell could come as a shock to Torres as he wants to stay.

Torres, 29, pockets £170,000 a week and the Blues face the prospect of either topping up a contract at a new club or paying him a lump sum to go away.
