It's starting to look as if Fernando Torres to AC Milan could actually happen. What's more, it's starting to look as if the deal would be permanent as opposed to a season long loan.
According to Gianluca Di Marzio, Fernando's agent is set to meet with Chelsea to discuss a severance package ahead of a permanent transfer. Di Marzio claims that Milan have interest in a permanent deal, and that Chelsea are only willing to let Torres depart if he's not coming back at the end of this season.
I'm sure Michael Emenalo and the board won't be thrilled about paying Torres to become someone else's headache, but the unfortunate reality at this point is that there's just no way the deal will happen without Chelsea contributing to the cause. Here's hoping they can negotiate a reasonable enough figure to make this deal go through, and then replace the Spaniard with a player more likely to put the ball in the net.
Please get this done...
