Jose Mourinho insists Fernando Torres is to remain at Chelsea next season as one of the club's three strikers.

Torres has been persistently linked with a return to Atletico Madrid this summer after struggling to make an impact at Stamford Bridge since his arrival in 2011.

Instead, the Spaniard must battle it out with new signing Diego Costa and Didier Drogba, who rejoined the Blues last week, for the marksman duties.

When Mourinho was asked if Torres was the player in question when the Portuguese indicated there may be a departure in the transfer window, he told Sky Sports News: "No.

"Three strikers is fundamental in a squad and we have three strikers - Fernando, Didier and Diego, so one of them is not (going) for sure."
