With the transfer window fast approaching, the rumour mill is heating up and one of the more interesting ones out there concerns Fernando Torres and a possible move to Newcastle United.
It appears the connection between the striker and the club stems from the relationship between him and Magpies manager Rafael Benitez from their time together at Liverpool and Chelsea.
However, the respected Spanish journalist Guillem Balague has poured cold water on the rumour taking to his social media feed on Twitter stating,
“About Torres and Newcastle there is nothing at all going on about it.”
Newcastle have negotiated their return to the Premier League much better than probably even their own fans expected and currently sit in 11th place with four wins and two draws from their first 11 games.
