Torres will join Atletico Madrid on loan in January for the rest of this season and all of next term, the club announced Tuesday.

Torres completed a permanent transfer from Chelsea to AC Milan last week, who are then loaning him to his boyhood club. Torres made his professional debut at 17 with the club before eventually becoming captain, scoring 91 goals in 244 games. From a fantasy perspective, he is unlikely to unseat starting striker Mario Mandzukic, and he will have to battle Antoine Griezmann for playing time as well.

Torres will sign a permanent deal with AC Milan on Jan. 5, though he is expected to be loaned to La Liga side Atletico Madrid in January, the BBC reports.

Torres was on a two-year loan deal from Chelsea, but the two sides decided to make the deal complete, which would allow Milan to send him to to his boyhood club in exchange for Alessio Cerci.

Speculation is growing that Torres may leave the club just months into his loan from Chelsea, Football Italia reports.

Torres hasn't done well with AC Milan, but it may not be his fault. His characteristics are perhaps not the best fit for Milan.

An ankle sprain prevented Torres from making his debut with AC Milan on Sunday, reports the Daily Mail.

Torres suffered the injury on Saturday, but the club waited until Sunday night to reveal the issue. The team was hoping the striker would recover in time for the match, but Torres was unable to make the cut.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Torres has joined AC Milan on a two-year loan deal.

Torres has failed to live up to his pricey transfer fee while at Stamford Bridge, which meant he found himself on the substitutes bench more often than not. He should receive regular starts for Milan, with whom he'll try to re-gain his long-absent goalscoring form. It is rather interesting that the deal is for two seasons, though either way it's highly unlikely Torres will don a Chelsea shirt ever again.

AC Milan is in discussions with Chelsea in an effort to bring Torres to Italy, reports the Daily Mail.

Reports suggest that Milan are willing to meet Chelsea's valuation, and will only need to secure terms with Torres and his exit payment to complete the agreement.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Torres was left out of the 18-man squad that faced Leicester City on Saturday, as speculation continues to mount that he will be moved this summer.

Torres was an unused substitute for Chelsea's Premier League opener against Burnley on Monday, and there appears to be little upside to staying at Stamford Bridge, as he is firmly stuck behind Diego Costa and Didier Drogba on the depth chart. A number of teams have shown interest in Torres, although manager Jose Mourinho continues to say that he is not for sale.

Roma has asked Chelsea about the possibility of bringing Torres to Italy, reports the Daily Mail.

Chelsea has previously said that the striker is not for sale, but Roma is offering Mattia Destro in exchange to help sweeten the deal. Chelsea have brought in two strikers this summer, Diego Costa and Didier Drogba.
