Multiple different sources (http://www.sportsbulletin.co.uk/football/chelsea-transfer-news-rumours-talks/04343/, http://miusoccer.com/chelsea-star-could-make-sensational-liverpool-move/11119, http://www.caughtoffside.com/2013/04/01/return-of-the-king-chelsea-offer-liverpool-chance-to-re-sign-fernando-torres-in-sensational-cut-price-deal/) are suggesting a possible return for Fernando Torres back to Liverpool. While we all know that the media that cover the major football leagues is extremely speculative, I thought it would be interesting to hear what AnfieldAsylum had to say about this possible transfer.
Essentially the transfer would not cost Liverpool any extra money in acquiring Fernando, only to forfeit the 15 million euros still owed to them by Chelsea. A return to his former club might result in a return to his previous form, and since we have no real alternative at forward behind Sturridge and Suarez, it might be beneficial for the club to grab a serviceable striker who has the possibility of being a star again.
I was a huge supporter of Fernando (as were essentially all) in his Liverpool days, and while the move to Chelsea still sits as a bad taste in my mouth, I would welcome him back to Liverpool with open arms (provided he gives an apology to the fans / scores a hat against the blues every match against them).
Still, I know that some previous wounds cut too deep, and many would not easily forget Fernando's past actions. Seeing as he is a player who I believe needs to be loved by his fans, it would be imperative for Liverpool fans to be supportive of his return to the club if there is any chance of him being a fraction of the player he once was.
So what do we think? If Fernando, who at one point one was of the most devastating forwards in the Premier League, loved by all in the KOP, wants to make a return to his club and rediscover that goalscoring touch, would we welcome him back? To me it seems like a low risk / high reward transfer.
