In this Sunday, Oct. 27, 2013, file photo, Chelsea's Fernando Torres celebrates after scoring the winning goal during the English Premier League soccer match between Chelsea and Manchester City. 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.
