The Spaniard smashed the British transfer record – broken by Angel di Maria’s move to Manchester United earlier this week – in 2011 as he switched to Stamford Bridge from Liverpool for £50m, but he failed to justify the massive price tag he commanded.
Despite numerous managers having attempted to get the best from him, Torres has continued to misfire, and Jose Mourinho finally lost patience with him last season.
With Diego Costa and Didier Drogba in, Chelsea opted to allow ‘El Nino’ to leave, with Milan his new club.
Torres’ agent discussed terms with the Italians yesterday, and now it’s understood that the once prolific forward has agreed to switch to the San Siro.
Thee two-year loan deal will see out the remaining time on his contract, during which he will continue to earn close to his £150,000-per-week salary after a severance package was agreed.
The 30-year-old is seen as Mario Balotelli’s replacement by the Rossoneri, who sold their former talisman to Liverpool earlier this week.
Chelsea may move for QPR’s Loic Remy to replace the man who cost them close to £1.1m per goal.
