Per this article from We Aint Got No History and Gianluca Di Marzio, Chelsea FC and Fernando Torre’s agent are to meet in order to discuss a severance package for the 30 year old Spaniard.
This news comes after various reports that Chelsea had begun to reach agreements with Serie A side AC Milan for a season long loan of Fernando Torres, with Milan paying 70% of the strikers wages and Chelsea contributing the remainder, which while is not ideal may hasten the departure of the once former wunderkind.
It appears that Chelsea have now coerced the Italians to purchase Fernando, or at the very least come to an agreement by which Fernando will leave the club and allow him to play elsewhere.
Chelsea will surely not be pleased at having to pay to part ways with the often misfiring striker, however as stated in my previous article, the Blues management only have themselves to blame. The acquisition of Fernando Torres was handled very poorly, as were the numerous attempts to inject the Spaniard into a side not suited to his skills.
It appears owner Roman Abramovich, now having patched things up with Jose Mourinho and acquired a dedicated goal scorer (Who we pray to the footy gods is NOT injured) and a club legend as a capable backup, has agreed to cut his losses on his biggest and flashiest purchase at Chelsea FC.
I’m hoping that Fernando agrees to leave, Milan agrees to pay a decent chunk of a transfer fee, and the Blues can move forward from the Fernando Torres saga.
