Spanish international,Fernando Torres has completed a two year loan move to AC Milan from Chelsea after passing a medical successfully on Sunday.
Torres arrived at Milan's Linate Airport on Saturday to undergo medical at Madoninna Clinic before signing for the Rossoneri.
He still has two years in his current Chelsea contract and will play those two years in ‘Red and Black’ Milan colours.
Torres happy to make move
The 30-year-old expressed his joy of signing for AC Milan by saying,”I’m really happy to have arrived in Milan, I cannot wait to start this new adventure. I want to maybe stay here many years”, he said.
The Spaniard will replace former frontman Mario Balotelli who left for Liverpool this summer for a fee of £16million.Torres will be handed the number nine jersey at his new club.
Warm welcome at San Siro
Torres was present at the San Siro where AC Milan hosted Lazio in a 3-1 win in the opening weekend at Serie A and was greeted with a warm welcome by fans.
The Daily Mail reports that Torres earned £150,000-per-week at Chelsea which could have been a hindrance for AC Milan, but after Milan admitted of their interest, Chelsea and the Italian outfit reached an agreement for Torres to move to San Siro.
He thus ended his three-and-a-half year stay at London and although his record move from Liverpool to Chelsea has been dubbed unsuccessful,it cannot be denied that he won major European titles with the Blues where he too was an instrumental figure, be it the Champions League triumph in 2012 or the Europa League in 2013.
