Who cares if we're paid for Torres in chunks or all at once? Doesn't make a difference at all - 50m is 50m and Chelsea will pay.
It makes a massive difference in terms of cash flow, I was listening to an interview with Evans and he said we paid for Carroll in one hit, so that's 35m.
He didn't allude to the finer details of the Torres deal but he said we definately took installments, these are generally spread oner length of contract, so if we took 10m a year over 5 years, it left us with a 'loss' of 25m on the deal last year. Now I know we get the money eventually, but it won't help our cashflow will it.
