Chelsea striker Fernando Torres has been loaned to AC Milan for two years, after completing a medical.

The Spaniard joined Chelsea from Liverpool for £50 million in January 2011. With both Diego Costa and Didier Drogba joining Chelsea this summer, Torres has fallen down the pecking order in London.

Record move from Liverpool

In the January of 2011 Torres moved from Liverpool to Chelsea for £50 million. At the time, it became the record for the highest British transfer deal.

However Torres has never really lived up to the hype and potential that he showed while playing for Liverpool. So far the Spanish striker has scored 20 goals in 110 league games.

Despite this disappointing output, Jose Mourinho kept his faith in the striker during last season.

However despite this, it seems Mourinho has finally admitted defeat over Torres and will let him leave the Blues on loan.

AC Milan search for striker

With Mario Balotelli moving back to the Premier League with Liverpool, AC Milan have been looking for a striker to replace the Italian.

The deal, which will see Torres join the Serie A side on loan for two seasons, is dependant the striker agreeing personal terms and him passing a medical. 

Torres is part of the Spanish team that won back-to-back European Championships in 2008 and 2012.

He was also part of the team that won Spain’s first World Cup title in South Africa in 2010. So far, Torres has played 108 games for Spain scoring 37 goals.
