BARCELONA LINING UP SHOCK DOUBLE CHELSEA RAID


ABOVE: Starlet Ruben Loftus-Cheek is set for a bright future

BARCELONA are planning a double raid on Chelsea.

The Catalan giants want to sign £18m-rated frontman Fernando Torres and little-known academy star Ruben Loftus-Cheek.
Barca are interested in bringing in Torres as a replacement for David Villa, who is rumoured to be joining Spurs.
And they have seen enough of Loftus-Cheek, an England youth international, to want to sign him as well.
The 17-year-old midfielder played against Manchester City in a post-season friendly in America.
City were keen on Loftus-Cheek earlier this season and Barca were too - but Chelsea handed him a new deal at Stamford Bridge.
Loftus-Cheek has spent his whole career at Chelsea but won't be moving to the Spanish champions anytime soon.
He doesn't turn 18 until January and therefore isn't old enough to be offered a professional deal.
