If a transfer deal is about to come to fruition, the media usually start providing some uniformity of opinion with regards to cost and details.

Yet incredibly early on Sunday morning in England, the British media are citing totally different figures as to what Chelsea's latest and possibly final bid will be.

Who will be right?

The Independent reckon Chelsea are going to bid £40M for Torres.

The Telegraph say meanwhile that Chelsea will offer close to £50M which will still not be enough for Liverpool who view £50M as the absolute minimum that they would accept.

Goal.com have predicted that a Chelsea offer of £50M plus Nicolas Anelka will seal the deal and is close to being on the table.

The Daily Mail however take the view that Liverpool are willing to accept a £50M deal, whether it be cash alone or including Nicolas Anelka as a part exchange deal.

It is the Mail's story that seems to be gaining most traction and could be the latest and most accurate. It could also, of course, be total nonsense.

One thing that the media are all united on: Chelsea's chase for Fernando Torres is far from over.
