“I Want To Face Barcelona Or Real Madrid In Champions League Final”: Torres

Fernando Torres hopes that Chelsea can go all the way to the Wembley and play against either Real Madrid or Barcelona in Fernando Torresthe final of the Champions League.

The Blues topped Group F and took down Copenhagen in the first knockout round of the European competition, and are now pitted against Manchester United in the quarter-finals.

And the former Atletico Madrid man is not only looking to get past the Red Devils but is eyeing up a Wembley final against Spanish opponents.

“I would love to play in the European Cup final, with Chelsea, against a Spanish side,” Torres said, according to The Sun.

The former Liverpool striker also believes Real Madrid are the favourites to win the competition, but warned Jose Mourinho’s side that Tottenham Hotspur, who they face in the quarter-finals, are no pushovers.

“Real Madrid are the favourites to win, although it is not going to be easy,” he continued.

“That is more 60-40. The Whites are going to have to play really well to beat Tottenham, who have some great players like Modric, Bale and Lennon.”

The club’s £50 million January signing also hailed owner Roman Abramovich for his ambition and willingness to open his cheque book to boost the squad in the hope of winning Europe’s top prize.

Torres added:”The fact that Roman Abramovich has paid that much money demonstrates that he wants the best team possible.

“He has ambition and he is not going to give in until he has won the Champions League, which is his dream.”
