The Spain striker has struggled to justify his £50million price tag since moving to Stamford Bridge from Liverpool in 2011 but finished last season in decent goalscoring form under interim coach Rafael Benitez and helped the club win the Europa League title. Since the end of the campaign Torres, who recognises he has not done as well as he would have hoped with the Blues, has been linked with Barcelona but the 29-year-old insists he sees his future at Chelsea and is looking forward to speaking with Mourinho about his plans. Fernando Torres has reiterated his commitment to Chelsea and is hoping he has a role to play under “demanding” new Blues coach Jose Mourinho. Speaking on Spanish radio show Al Primer Toque, Torres said: “I am the first to admit that a lot more was expected of me, even I expected more of myself. Now I have the added pressure of Mourinho and that’s a challenge for any player. “Chelsea is the club I’m at and where I want to be, I want to keep winning trophies there. “I am dealing with the situation in a normal way, every summer there are rumours about new coaches and new players. Mourinho is a very demanding coach but he always guarantees success, and I trust that he has a plan for me.” Torres, who is currently on international duty with Spain at the Confederations Cup in Brazil, was also quizzed about supposed interest from Barcelona. The former Atletico Madrid hitman said: “I have known (Barca president Sandro) Rosell for a very long time. We have a close relationship but that’s it. “I’m focusing on the Confederations Cup for now and immediately after I will focus on Chelsea again. I want to speak with Mourinho first and then prepare myself for the coming season.” Press Association
