Torres has received a lot of support from us, maybe more than whats due. But facts are facts, he is just not looking the part. Many fans want him to be sold off.
But should a 50 million man be so easily given up on ?
Apart from a few good performances, and a few goals against not-so difficult defenses, not anywhere close to what he was.
I feel he just needs his confidence back, and selling him to Anzhi or some other similar club would just spell the end to his career. Rather, a half-year or a full season loan spell would do good to him.
A place maybe where the media won't focus on him at all. When the only mention of Torres will be in WAGNH's Loan Roundup. Loads of goals and being the top striker for a team again could make him the Torres he was.
I dont think he should be loaned to a team in the EPL, that still won't end the media focus. Spain maybe ? I am sure there would be many teams wanting him on loan. And if Drogba stays, and Chelsea get another striker, he would just be on the bench (if not sold), might as well loan him out. Then he will come back with a point to prove.
