Punters And Villas-boas Back Torres To Stay

William Hill punters seem to agree with Andre Villas-Boas’ claims that Fernando Torres will be staying put for the time being, with considerable bets having been staked on him still being at Chelsea on the 1st February. Initially offered at 4/11, the weight of money coupled with Villas-Boas’ strong stance on Torres’ future, has seen this price slashed to 1/5. The majority of the money has come from Northern Ireland and Oxfordshire.

“Torres has endured a difficult first year at Chelsea but it appears that punters’ support matches that of his manager and it seems he will be given time to turn things around,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Malaga are 7/1 to be the club that Torres lines up for after the transfer window closes on and Manchester United are 9/1.

Where will Fernando Torres be on the 1st February 2012: 1/5 Chelsea; 7/1 Malaga; 9/1 Manchester United; 10/1 Atletico Madrid; 11/1 AC Milan; 14/1 PSG; 14/1 Inter Milan; 14/1 Manchester City; 16/1 Barcelona; 16/1 Liverpool; 16/1 Juventus; 20/1 Real Madrid; 25/1 Arsenal
