Chelsea striker Fernando Torres looks set to be shipped out on loan to Inter Milan.
Italian giants Inter Milan are hoping to tie up a deal for Chelsea striker Fernando Torres this summer, and have proposed a season long loan move for the Spaniard with a view to a permanent move at the end of next season, reports the Daily Mail.
Inter’s new management under Indonesian businessman Erick Thohir are looking to bolster their squad this summer with the minimum possible investment and 30-year old Torres fits their bill. Reports suggest that Inter are open to a season long loan move for Chelsea’s flop striker with a transfer fee of 10 million pounds being mooted at the end of next season.
Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho wants to desperately offload Torres, and his strike partners Demba Ba and Samuel Eto’o this summer as he plots a complete revamp of his strike force, but it remains to be seen whether the Blues will accept Inter’s proposal.
A stumbling block in the deal could be Torres’ high wages as Inter are only willing to offer the former Liverpool star 3 million pounds a year, which is well below what he currently earns at Stamford Bridge.
