Soccer Central: Ask the Insiders is Fan Fuel’s new blog where fans get to pick the topics. This week, Kyle Myers asks the Insiders: What do you think Chelsea should do with Fernando Torres after the season? Stick with him or try to sell?

GERRY DOBSON: It all depends on what they can get for him. But it certainly won’t be nearly as much as what they paid for him. I think they should keep him. He may not score like he used to, but he’s still a valuable player who can set up goals as well.

CRAIG FORREST: Well they won’t get anything near the $50 million they paid for him. Chelsea will be buy in the summer and the manager will likely change. It will be up to the new manager as to whether Torres can play a part in his plans. The good thing for Chelsea is that they do not need to sell in order to buy.

DANIEL FERNANDES: I think they will cut their losses next season with Torres especially with a new manager coming in. I don’t think Torres will ever get back to being the player he once was. It was always going to be difficult to justify that major transfer fee. I could see him going back to Spain next season on loan or permanently.
