Why Fernando Torres should not be loaned out

Chelsea striker Fernando Torres has today been linked with a surprise loan move to Inter Milan as Jose Mourinho is looking to replace the under-fire Spaniard with Diego Costa.

It is clear to see that Torres' Chelsea career is over as Mourinho is counting down the days until he can bring in a player of Costa's calibre.

Chelsea would be several points clear in the Premier League if Mourinho had a top-class striker who could perform on a regular basis in his ranks.

The likes of Torres, Samuel Eto'o and Demba Ba are not in the same bracket as Costa.

The aforementioned trio are all likely to be moved on in the summer as they have failed to make use of world-class playmakers such as Eden Hazard, Oscar and Willian.

I agree that Torres needs to move on in order to rediscover the kind of form that forced Chelsea into paying £50million for the Spaniard back in 2011.

However I cannot understand why Chelsea would loan out a player of Torres' stature.

The former Liverpool striker is no longer a spring chicken - having turned 30 on January 31 - so it is not like a loan move would improve Torres' all-round game.

There is a high possibility Torres will improve when he does finally settle into new surroundings -but he will probably return to west London a shadow of his former self if he was to be recalled to Stamford Bridge.

Torres just hasn't been able to adapt to Chelsea's style and a loan move certainly wouldn't change that.

I feel like it is time for Torres and Chelsea to agree to a permanent divorce - rather than a temporary split which will just cause more problems for all concerned.
