AC Milan sign Chelsea striker Fernando Torres on permanent deal
Nirapad News : Chelsea and Spain striker Fernando Torres will join AC Milan on a permanent basis on 5 January.
Torres, 30, moved to the Serie A club on a two-year loan deal in August and will now make his move permanent.
Torres joined Chelsea from Liverpool for a then British record transfer fee of £50m in January 2011.
The striker helped win the Champions League, Europa League and FA Cup while at Chelsea.
Torres had been linked with a return to boyhood club Atletico Madrid after the Spanish champions’ president hinted at a deal earlier this month.
Earlier on Saturday, Atletico assistant coach German Burgos also said a deal was “on the verge of completion”.
“He will be a very important reinforcement for the second half of the season,” Diego Simeone’s number two told Spanish media.
Torres left Atletico for Liverpool in 2007.
