Chelsea, Torres set for talks

London - Chelsea will prepare themselves for talks with striker Fernando Torres about his future this week after the Spaniard said he was unhappy with how he has been treated.

Torres was a substitute in the Champions League final victory against Bayern Munich and told Spanish newspaper AS that he was seriously considering his next step.

"I have been through the worst moments of my career during the season," he said. "I felt they have treated me in a way I was not expecting."

Torres has scored 11 goals this season, having joined from Liverpool for 50 million pounds (79 million dollars) in January 2011 and has spent much of the season on the bench, second fiddle to Didier Drogba.

"It's contradictory because I feel like I'm at a peak moment in my career, with more desire and hunger than I've felt in a long time, but I've had to spend the final on the bench," he said.

"It was a huge disappointment when I saw the line-up, perhaps the biggest disappointment in my life. I thought I would play in this game and I couldn't imagine not doing so."

Torres said he would be seeking further talks with the club in the coming days.

"The role I've had this season is not for me, nor is it the one I expected to play when I came here," he said.

"I'm not comfortable. A victory like this one against Munich does compensate, but I want them to tell me what is going to happen in the future.

"Now I do feel like football is worth it but I've been through a difficult time. The worst in my career. And I don't want to go through it again."
