Being shit on purpose to deflect criticism from his teammates and manager ... Because he's the hero Chelsea deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So we'll hunt him. Because he can take it. Bec

A two year loan is strange.

It isn't, it's actually very smart from our end. If we sold him we'd have to pay off his remaining transfer fee ( i believe it's around £18 million) immediately, causing us to take a hit in our 2014-2015 ffp balance.

With this being a loan we'd be able to spread his remaining transfer fee over those 2 years and pay £9 million this year and 9 £million next year.

There is no fee involved in the Torres deal and Chelsea describe it as a two-year loan for a player who struggled to justify the record fee that had prised him from Anfield. However, they will take some comfort from saving upwards of £15m in wages over the two years that were remaining on his contract. It is understood he will depart without a pay-off to replace Mario Balotelli at San Siro.

From the Guardian. So basically Milan are covering all of his wages. Brilliant.

Just a thought, there must have been a fair number of our squad who privately had the same thoughts on Torres as we did. The way Lampard looked to him after the CWC final, if a picture could ever tell one thousand words ............

It must have been frustrating as fuck to play with him.

Where the hell are you even getting that from? Di Marzio said it's a 2 year deal, Jason Burt from the Telegraph said the same. It's a permanent transfer.

Oh how right you were :Goober:
