AC Milan hopeful that Torres can re-ignite career

Chelsea says it has agreed terms with AC Milan for striker Fernando Torres to join the Serie A club in a two-year loan deal. The Premier League club said in a statement that “the move is now subject to Fernando agreeing personal terms with AC Milan and passing a medical examination.” The deal was announced a few hours after Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho had raised the prospect of Torres leaving before the transfer window closes, saying the Spain striker may be ready to “try a new life, a new club, probably a new league.” Torres joined Chelsea from Liverpool in January 2011 for what was then a British-record fee of 50 million pounds (then $81 million), but has struggled to command a regular starting place for the London club.
