Liverpool 'kidded' Chelsea by getting £50m for Torres, says Carragher

The former Reds defender was "shocked" when the Spanish striker made his record move in January 2011, and was not surprised when things turned sour
Liverpool knew they had "kidded" Chelsea when selling Fernando Torres for £50 million ($62m) and that the other players were "shocked" they received such a huge transfer fee, according to Jamie Carragher.
Torres moved from Liverpool to Chelsea on deadline day of the January transfer window in 2011 for what was then a record fee between two Premier League clubs. He did, however, fail to capture the scoring form which had made him such a feared striker at Anfield.
The Spaniard's move to Chelsea is now regarded as one of the biggest English transfer flops of all time - which was no surprise to his former Liverpool team-mate Carragher, who said those on Merseyside were aware that the Blues were buying a player past his peak.
