Fernando Torres has been assured of his future at Chelsea Football Club.
The Spanish international has endured a difficult time since his £50million British record move to Stamford Bridge from Liverpool in January 2011.
Torres, though, helped the Blues win the UEFA Champions League and FA Cup this season, yet he has been playing second fiddle to Didier Drogba.
This led to speculation that the 28-year-old could be on his way out in the summer, but the situation has changed since the Ivorian announced his departure.
Torres has now sought talks with the owner of the London club, Roman Abramovich, who has in turn assured him that he will play a key role for the first team next season.
"I had a conversation with the owner of Chelsea and he trusts me,” he said. "His confidence is total and that is what I needed to keep fighting and continue to be essential for the team."
