The striker is to be left in limbo.
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has confirmed that Fernando Torres will not be returning to Stamford Bridge even if he has his loan contract terminated by AC Milan, reports respected journalist Miguel Delaney.
Mourinho confirms Torres won’t be returning to Chelsea. What a dismal story for a player once was so good.

The Mirror reports that having failed to impress at the San Siro following his temporary move there in the summer, Milan are looking to terminate Torres’ contract 18 months early.

This will sum up what has been a steady and brutal fall from grace for a striker once considered among the best in the Premier League and perhaps even the world.
With Mourinho having Diego Costa, Didier Drogba and Loic Remy available currently the 51-year-old does not need another forward and Torres is set to be left in the wilderness.
At 30-years-old this will be quite an embarrassment for a player who was once a British record transfer after the Blues paid Liverpool £50m for his services in January 2011.
That move signaled the start of the decline for Torres and the fact that no club wants him – with his boyhood side Atletico Madrid the latest to reject him – says everything people need to know about how the Spaniard is now regarded in the game.
Perhaps Brendan Rodgers should take a look at a Reds legend who is now available on a free? Let’s be honest, he can’t do any worse than the current crop at Anfield.
