Chelsea are once again being linked with a swap-deal that would see Fernando Torres leave the club, with Robinho the latest name in the Stamford Bridge frame.

Alexandre Pato was yesterday reported to be a potential Blues target, and The Daily Mail now claims his compatriot is the latest to be considered as part of a possible deal.

Robinho, who spent two seasons in the Barclays Premier League with Manchester City before moving to Santo on loan and then AC Milan, has enjoyed relative success since leaving Eastlands and claimed a Serie 'A' title with the Rossoneri last term.

Having previously been linked with a move to Chelsea, it's an obvious link between the two parties given Roman Abramovich remains in charge of the finances in west London.

It was claimed the Russian was involved in the decision to sign £50 million striker Torres, but with the Spaniard only scoring one goal in his first nine months at the club, paper reports claim Chelsea are now ready to cut their losses.


It's unclear if manager Andre Villas-Boas would be interested in a deal to bring the versatile 27-year-old samba star back to England, and publicly the Chelsea manager has done nothing but defend his struggling striker.

However, AC Milan has a long-standing interest in Torres stemming back to his time with Atletico Madrid, and could look to make an attractive offer in a bid to entice Chelsea into a deal.
