How much humiliation can one man take? As the trials and tribulations of Fernando Torres continue it may just be that we eventually find out. However, the exclusion of the £50m striker from Chelsea’s matchday squad against Leicester caused some to speculate that this may be more than mere salt in the wounds. With Mario Balotelli’s move to Liverpool a near certainty, Milan are in need of striker and Italy has often looked like the most likely destination for the Torres. How much of the £50m Chelsea could recoup is unclear but the feeling is that many at the club would just be happy to have the Spanish striker off their books after 2 and a half years of consistent failure.
Torres not in the squad. I think he is off for this season. #CFC

Very interesting that Torres isn’t even on the bench. Surely off now?

Italian reports claim Milan will send over a delegation to discuss terms with Torres tomorrow or Monday, presenting their project. #CFC
