This afternoon, all things Leeds United related on Twitter began to go crazy. This was after rumours began to circulate that if Marcelo Bielsa was to be announced as Leeds United manager, that the West-Yorkshire side could look to sign Fernando Torres who is currently a free agent, as unlikely as it sounds.
Although such a deal seems both outrageous and impossible, you never quite know what can happen in the footballing world and this afternoon, Leeds United fans have taken to social media to give their somewhat contrasting opinions on the Torres rumours.
There were the excited reactions:

There were the more realistic reactions:

There were people who didn’t believe what they were reading:

I know we have had some stupid rumors over the years but Torres is just another level! Not a bloody chance. Why do people even write these articles #lufc

There was a witty reaction:
Lets not sign Torres until Steve Evans has had his say. #lufc

But also, there was an optimistic reaction:
-38 goals for Spain in 110 games
-Champions League winner, Europa League, Fa Cup and named in the 2008 Fifa World XI
-Liverpool’s first player since Robbie Fowler score more than 20 league goals in a season.
