Fernando Torres is this morning quoted in The Guardian stating once again his reasons for signing for Chelsea, the struggles he currently has to deal with and the ultimate goal he has for his time at Chelsea and you won't be surprised to hear it's not the Premier League although to win it would be good too!.

He said:
"The first few weeks are not easy, You don't just arrive and everything is waiting for you. You have to get to grips with a new city, there's all the paperwork, looking for an apartment ... it takes time to find your feet and there are moments when everything seems a mess.

I'm sure that my best years in the Premier League are still to come. Now I want to settle down, to focus on football and to enjoy my time here. With Chelsea I can fight for the league title and the Champions League. Only once with Liverpool did I experience that feeling. Just over six weeks ago I wasn't feeling as I am now. Now I feel that I'm closer to what I want to achieve in football.

I've spent my life trying to win and looking for titles. I have been lucky enough to win the European Championship and the World Cup with Spain. But as a footballer you also want to win with your club, the team you train with every day, and the reason why you are living and playing abroad. Chelsea are going to give me that chance this year, the next and the next. Over the next 50 years the club will be fighting with the likes of Manchester United and Arsenal. Chelsea have an owner who continues to invest in the squad, an owner who has a dream and an owner who will not stop until his dream comes true.

There was only one team that could offer what I wanted, especially as I wanted to stay in England. Chelsea confirmed their interest in the January transfer window after having already tried and failed in the summer.

I did not fancy a move to Manchester City, or a move to Manchester United out of respect and loyalty to Liverpool. I couldn't let this chance pass me by.

(He was asked what he would prefer to win) Definitely the Champions League. After winning the World Cup and the European Championship it is the biggest prize you can win. I would also love to win the Premier League as it's a great competition, and I'm sure that I will win at least one. You can never tell with the Champions League."

It's nice once again to hear Torres speak of his hunger and desire for the move to Chelsea. His comments once again reiterate the standing Chelsea as a football club now have in amongst Europe's elite and he like everyone, is gunning for Champions League glory.

We do have to remember he IS still trying to settle down at the club and it cannot be easy as he looks for a place he can call home locally. Trying to concentrate in training and relax off the pitch while sorting out a new home is hard enough for all of us but when you are asked to perform in front of millions worldwide it's not so simple.

Let's hope he gets his first goal at the Bridge on Wednesday and it goes a long way to settling him down and putting Chelsea firmly in contention for the Champions League this season.
