Blues boss Jose Mourinho has insisted that Torres will not be sold this summer despite the 30-year-old having endured a difficult time in front of goal ever since moving from Liverpool in 2011.
However, the player’s boyhood club have registered an interest in bringing him back to the Vicente Calderon after their most recent star striker Diego Costa joined the Blues just a few short weeks ago.
Spanish publication AS.com are claiming that Atletico will keep tabs on Torres over the coming weeks after the player expressed a concern about how much playing time he will receive now that club legend Didier Drogba has made his return.
However, it was announced yesterday that Drogba will likely miss between four to six months of the season after picking up an ankle injury against Hungarian side Ferencvaros at the weekend.
The injury to Drogba and the recent sale of Romelu Lukaku to Everton could mean that the Blues are not looking to do business.
