AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani has revealed that on-loan striker Fernando Torres should not leave in January.
Reports have strongly linked the Spaniard back to Premier League but the Milan representative has clearly said that he should not leave.
Adriano Galliani said: “Fernando Torres shouldn’t leave in January, but the market is unpredictable.”
The former Liverpool striker was not even in the squad for Milan’s clash with Napoli yesterday. However, it was the flu due to which Milan had to drop him out. But the rumours started claiming that Torres missed the match indicates another hint for his return.
Torres signed a two-year loan deal with the Serie A side in the summer. And reports are already sending him back to Chelsea in January. While Liverpool are also reportedly interested in their former star striker.
Galliani told Sky Sport Italia: “Will he leave in January? I don’t think so, but the market is unpredictable,”
Galliani believes that Torres needs time to settle in the Italian league. And he hopes that Torres has still enough qualities to be the one that he used to be.
While Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has already denied to take Torres back as he said that there is no room for the Spaniard. Diego Costa, Didier Drogba and Loic Remy are all enough for the striker’s role.
The Portuguese told earlier that he is on-two year loan deal at Milan. He is our player but there is no place for him in any competition.
