It looks like as if no one wants to sign Fernando Torres these days. Yesterday we had reported that AC Milan wants to send the Chelsea striker on loan to Atletico Madrid in exchange for Alessio Cerci. However, yesterday’s late night report from Sport Mediaset claims that Brazilin side Corinthians are interested in the player.
The report has cited stories in the Brazilian media saying that Corinthians had asked Milan on a possible loan move for Torres in the upcoming January transfer window. The striker has scored only once in 10 appearances and has not played for the Rossoneri since the Milan derby on 23 November.
Chelsea too aren’t willing to take back Torres with manager Jose Mourinho saying, “We have no space for players in our list, either in the Champions League or the Premier League.” Corinthians are also willing to offer €1m for Torres’ services till the end of the season. Torres’ £150,000-a-week wage could be a stumbling block and any deal that would be done has to be sanctioned by Chelsea.
