Report: Fernando Torres Submits Transfer Request, Looks to Chelsea as Next Career Move

Fernando Torres is reportedly looking toward the next move in his career, and it may not involve the Reds.

According to theguardian.co.uk, Torres has submitted a transfer request to the owners at Anfield. He has reportedly said that a move away from Anfield might be the best thing for his career.

Torres said he feels a deal can be reached that would benefit both his career as well as Liverpool. If he goes to Chelsea, Liverpool could make £20 million ($31.7 million)  in profit (they signed him for £23 million [$36.5 million]).

When asked about a potential deal, Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti said, "I don't want to speak about this, you will have to ask the club. He is not my player and I have to have respect for Liverpool. I don't like to speak about this."
