Fernando Torres is set to remain a A.C. Milan player despite speculation insisting that the striker is set to re-join the Premier League.
Torres joined Milan in the summer on a two-year loan move from Chelsea after struggling to emulate his form at Liverpool and Atletico Madrid. The £50m striker has only managed 1 goal in 10 matches for the Rossoneri and has not featured in Milan’s last three Serie A games, increasing speculation that the club will look to offload Torres in the January transfer window.
When asked about that possibility, AC Milan club administrator Adriano Galliani told Sky Sports: “I don’t think he (Torres) will leave, even if the market is unpredictable.”
“Torres has been unlucky,” Galliani said. “He has struggled with injuries and is coming from a different league. We need to be patient. He is important and will probably return (to top form).”
There has been much speculation suggesting that Torres’ former club, Liverpool are ready to launch a bid to bring back the striker, however, Galliani looks to have quashed such rumours.
A player with undoubted quality, why has Torres struggled since leaving Liverpool?
