90 minutes of Lionel Messi worth more than one year of Fernando Torres

Flop

Chelsea supporters have had their relief at actually winning a match cut short by the realisation that paying £50 million for one game from Lionel Messi would have been more worthwhile than paying that amount for Fernando Torres permanently.

Five goals from Messi for Barcelona last night set the Champions League alight in an extraordinary performance that only Bayer Leverkusen and Chelsea supporters would have failed to enjoy.

Professor Watson from the University of Football Statistics confirmed, “Our research shows that 90 minutes of Messi is undoubtedly better than any quantity of Torres.

“But it’s not a fair comparison because Torres really isn’t good enough to play in the Champions League anymore.

“If it was a year or more of him mowing my lawn, I might consider it.”

    If 90 minutes of Messi is worth more than all of Fernando Torres’ games, and the market says that Torres is worth £50m…
    Then the 40+ games he plays a year must be worth £2bn or higher. Over a four or five year contract, that means he’d be worth £8-10bn.
    Crikey, he is good.

      To be honest if my team could get him for five years for £10bn I’d say “Go for it!”
