Fernando Torres poised to re-join Atletico Madrid
Fernando Torres (in pic) is poised to re-join boyhood club Atletico Madrid after they outlined a deal with AC Milan that should see Alessio Cerci go in the opposite direction.
Torres is on a two-year loan from Chelsea but has failed to impress and Atletico are convinced they can rekindle the player of old should he return to Spain, reports dailymail.co.uk. They will take over Milan’s loan arrangement with Chelsea and take Torres for 18 months. The 27-year-old Cerci, who joined Atletico for £13m in the summer from Torino, will go to Milan. It has been reported last week the deal had been discussed but there has been interest from other Italian clubs in Cerci, notably from Inter Milan. He is yet to agree to the move. Torres is on holiday in the Maldives but has already given the proposal his blessing.
