Chelsea have announced that Milan have bought Fernando Torres on a permanent deal, scheduled to be completed on January 5th.

The permanent deal is another process in loaning the striker to Atletico Madrid as he was already on loan at Milan and a loan within a loan would take inception-like negotiation skills. The striker will be loaned out to the Spanish champions once the deal is finalized as Alessio Cerci will be completing his medical around the same time.

Though he has a career filled with incredible achievements with his clubs as well as the Spanish side, it is no secret that Torres has been in an incredible spiral since his transfer to Chelsea. Having failed to impress in his short time at the San Siro, it's become apparent that not only does his parent club not want him back, but Milan have also looked for a way to rid themselves of what has been a bad deal. This transfer is just another hurdle in pushing him out of the door. Subtraction by addition.
