What next for the Stamford Bridge man?
AC Milan are ready to send misfiring Spaniard Fernando Torres back to Chelsea in January according to CalcioMercato.
The San Siro side are keen on signing either Liverpool’s Suso or Sampdoria forward Stefano Okaka and don’t appear to have much use for Torres, who has proven something of a failure since his move to Italy.
The 30 year old former Liverpool and Atletico Madrid man finds himself at something of a career crossroads and will be all too aware that his chances of reigniting his career at Chelsea are slim to non-existent.
Torres netted in his first start at AC Milan but has subsequently failed to net in his following eight appearances and Pippo Inzaghi appears ready to cancel his loan deal at the club.
Chelsea paid a then British record fee of £50m for Torres back in 2011 and he hasn’t come close to justifying that outlay and Roman Abramovich may well be ready to call time on the forward’s career at the west London side.
