Atletico Madrid ‘in talks over Torres return’

Atletico Madrid have opened talks with Chelsea over the possibility of striker Fernando Torres making a return to the Spanish capital, writes ESPN.

According to reports, Atletico chief executive Miguel Angel Gil Marin was in London over the weekend to discuss the possible deal, and the talks are set to resume when he returns to Madrid. Chelsea would accept a fee of £13m for the Spaniard, but Atletico are aiming to claim their former captain for even less.


Torres began his career at the Vicente Calderon and went on to score 91 goals in 244 appearances before Rafael Benitez tempted him to join Liverpool in the summer of 2007. After failing to win a trophy at Anfield, he moved to West London in January 2011 for a British record transfer fee of £50m, but has failed to replicate the form he had shown in the past.


He found starts increasingly difficult to come by last season due to his lack of goals and could again be set to find his opportunities limited next season after Chelsea brought Diego Costa in from Atletico, who believe that a move back to his homeland could resurrect Torres’ career, although the talks are not yet at an advanced stage.
