I don't know how successful Torres will be with Chelsea, he was dropped from Spain's starting XI at the World Cup because he didn't partner effectively with Villa, and he's always been his best as a lone striker. Will be interesting to see how he does playing with Drogba.
Fine Suarez and Carroll for Torres, Babel, and $10 mil. I still feel the same way. And Babel is a winger, which is a position you said you'd like them to add.
And Torres lost his spot at the World Cup because he was hurt. When healthy he and Villa are great together. That was never the case at the World Cup though.
Basically this comes down to IMO Carroll not being worth what they paid to pry him out of Newcastle. He is a nice player but nowhere near roughly 75% of Torres. If they got both those guys for roughly what they sold Torres for this works more for me.
And still the idea of Torres playing off Drogba is scary.
