Chelsea flop Torres set for early return to Stamford Bridge

Fernando Torres could be set for a sensational return to Chelsea in January as AC Milan prepare to terminate the Spaniard's two-year loan deal 18 months early. The £50m flop has scored just one goal in 10 appearances for the Italian giants, and after a number of underwhelming performances Pippo Inzaghi is ready to cut his losses. With Milan struggling in seventh place in the Serie 'A' table, Inzaghi is coming under increasing pressure to turn things around at the San Siro, and in order to do so he wants to bring in a new striker to replace Torres. The developments could see the 30-year-old back at Stamford Bridge in the New Year, but Jose Mourinho will surely look to farm Torres out again after signing Diego Costa, Loic Remy and Didier Drogba during the summer. Torres was expected to see out the remainder of his Chelsea contract abroad, but after failing to make a positive impact in Italy is at risk of seeing his spell in Milan cancelled after just half a season.
