Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has rubbished suggestions Fernando Torres will return to the club in January amid reports Milan want to end early the Spain striker’s spell in Serie A, according to ESPN.
The story was put to Mourinho at a Press conference but the Portuguese gave little credence in it. “No. I don’t know but he’s on loan for two seasons at Milan. He’s our player but he’s on loan,” Mourinho said.
“We have no space for players in the list. Either in the Champions League or Premier League. That’s an impossible picture. But I have to say, nobody from Milan made contact with us thinking about that possibility, so probably nothing is true and, more than possibly, he’s happy at Milan and Milan to have him.”
Torres moved to Chelsea from Liverpool in January 2011 and made 172 appearances for the Blues, scoring 46 goals. He has to date scored once for Milan in seven games, with the Rossoneri in seventh place in the table.
