The Spain striker is on loan at AC Milan following a dismal spell at Chelsea, but the Italian giants are keen to cancel his contract after just one goal in ten appearances in Serie A.

Jose Mourinho today insisted Torres would not return to the Blues.

Mourinho signed Diego Costa, Loic Remy and Didier Drogba this summer and has no space in his squad.

Reports emerged that Chelsea would be willing to move him on for free if Milan did cancel his deal, however reports in Spain have suggested Rodgers would be open to bringing him back to Anfield.
