The Serie A side isn’t willing to make the deal permanent as they consider Torres’ £150,000-a-week wages to be too high given his huge fall in form over the past few seasons.

Despite his huge fee, the 30-year-old striker somehow failed to make any real impact at Stamford Bridge as Milan are currently preparing to take him off Jose Mourinho’s hands by offering a loan move.

He could be close to an exit after the Blues boss excluded him from his sides latest 2-0 victory against newly promoted Leicester.

During his four years at the club, the Spaniard made 110 appearances, but only managed to net 20 goals, a very low tally given his £50million price tag as well as his impressive scoring records at former clubs Atletico Madrid and Liverpool.
