Torres totally unwanted in Italy…
AC Milan want to cut Fernando Torres’s loan deal early, and bring in Atletico Madrid’s Alessio Cerci on a temporary deal instead, reports ESPN.
To smooth the transfer, the Italians want Torres to join Atletico in the opposite direction.
Chelsea own Torres of course, so the striker would only be allowed to join his boyhood club if the Blues allowed it.
Cerci is struggling in Spain, and would likely jump at the chance to move back to his homeland, as Torres would – who’s enduring a similarly miserable season in Serie A.
Torres is completely surplus to requirements at Chelsea, so don’t expect the Premier League leaders to make the potentially complicated swap deal any more difficult than it already is.
