Milan set to tempt Chelsea with ambitious swap

Spanish newspaper Marca are reporting that AC Milan are lining up an ambitious swap deal for Fernando Torres in an attempt to end his Chelsea nightmare.

Since signing for £50 million from Liverpool in January the Spanish hit man has been seen his form rapidly decline scoring only one goal in 22 games for the Blues.

The chances of him leaving Stamford Bridge increased after recent interview with the official La Liga website saw him criticise  his teammates for being ‘too slow’.

Andre Villas-Boas has stated the matter has been resolved although it seems that the Portuguese coach has lost faith with the 27-year-old after another scoreless outing in the Champions League on Tuesday night.

Reports earlier in the week linked him with a move to Italy and now it seems the Serie A side are ready to firm up their interest by testing Chelsea’s resolve in January with a cash plus player bid.

It’s been suggested that Milan could offer Robinho as a makeweight with the Brazilian on the peripheral at the San Siro and a target for numerous Chelsea managers in the past.

Whether Villas-Boas would be prepared to take on the former Manchester City misfit is another matter with six strikers vying for a place up front at the current time.
