Chelsea confirms two-year AC Milan loan for striker Fernando Torres


Jose Mourinho wasn’t being straight with the media when he said his “squad is closed”. Who figured?

Chelsea announced on Friday that forward Fernando Torres is going on a two-year loan to AC Milan, mere hours after Mourinho said the Spaniard was going nowhere.

He adds fuel to an AC Milan attack that lost Mario Balotelli but has gained Jeremy Menez and now Torres to play with Keisuke Honda and company.

Milan is trying to rebound from a disastrous 2013/14, and Torres style could fit nicely into Serie A.

The deal is subject to Torres agreeing to terms and passing a medical.
