Goal readers back Mourinho to sell Torres

Despite scoring 22 goals in all competitions last season, the Spain striker is seemingly living on borrowed time at Stamford Bridge now that the Special One has returned
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho should offload striker Fernando Torres this summer, according to Goal readers.

7/4 Fernando Torres is 7/4 with Coral not to start 2013-14 at Chelsea
The Spain international has found the net just 34 times in 131 games for the Blues since his record-breaking £50 million switch from Liverpool in January 2011 and led Mourinho to brand his time at Stamford Bridge as "so-so"

The 29-year-old did score 22 goals last season, including the crucial equaliser in the Europa League final against Benfica, but just eight of those were in the Premier League, in which the west London club finished third.

And, with the Special One set to freshen up his attacking options in the summer following his return, nearly 60 per cent of our readers have voted in favour of pointing Torres towards the Chelsea exit.

However, 40.5% of the voters believe that the forward still has something to offer and would like to see him remain part of the setup for the 2013-14 campaign.
