The Brazil-born Spanish international has had a phenomenal 2013/14 season with the Rojiblancos, helping them win the La Liga crown, as well as clinch second-place in the Champions League, with his stat line of 36 goals and 7 assists in 51 appearances.

"People have been saying for some time that Chelsea have signed a striker, and if it's Diego, then it's very welcome," said Torres after suffering a 5-1 defeat in the hands of Netherlands.

"The level of competition at big clubs should always be very high."

The 25-year-old former Valladolid man was a non-factor in Spain's recent thrashing, managing only two shots at goal, and was subbed at the 62nd minute by soon-to-be-teammate Torres.
