AC Milan were keen on Torres

AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani has admitted that the club were interested in bringing Chelsea striker Fernando Torres to Italy.

The Spanish international hitman moved to west London in January 2011, but has failed to reach the heights that made him one of the world’s most feared strikers at Liverpool.

Indeed, the 29-year-old has struggled to repay the £50million price paid by the Blues for his services, and he’s regularly been linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge.

Galliani has revealed that the San Siro was a potential destination, but that a move never really materialised in the end.

"Fernando Torres? No, he earns too much. He was an idea but we never got there, there are other players that we got closer to home," he said, according to talKSPORT, in relation to the Chelsea striker.

Since making the move to the King’s Road, striker Torres has tasted European glory with success in both the Champions League and Europa League.

He is yet to win a Premier League title however, and will hope to help Chelsea reach the summit this season under manager Jose Mourinho.

Torres will have to fight for his place in the Blues' first team however, with Samuel Eto'o and Demba Ba also vying for opportunities under 'the special one'.

Milan, meanwhile, are struggling in Serie 'A', and currently find themselves in mid-table.
