Carlo quiet on Torres link

29 January 2011 05:00
Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti did not want to answer questions about his club's pursuit of Fernando Torres after their FA Cup fourth-round clash at Everton. The Londoners are thought to be preparing a second bid for the Liverpool striker after an initial offer, thought to be worth £35million, was rejected but prompted the player to make a transfer request. Liverpool have also turned down Torres' request but it may have given Chelsea enough encouragement to move again for the 26-year-old before Monday's transfer deadline. Yet if that is the plan, Ancelotti was remaining tight-lipped about it after his side came from behind to claim a 1-1 draw at Goodison Park. "I don't know, we will have to wait. There is no change," was all the Italian would say when asked on the matter.
