However, the 51-year-old Chelsea manager underlined his desire to keep Torres to provide vital depth to his Blue squad this coming season.
“Three strikers is fundamental [for the squad] and we have three strikers in Didier, Diego, and Fernando, so he won’t be leaving, no,” Mourinho told Sky Sports News.
