Chelsea flop Fernando Torres is set to be loaned out in January if he fails to find his goalscoring boots.
A temporary deal, probably back to Spain, is being considered by Blues boss André Villas-Boas as he attempts to solve Torres’ loss of form.
He has scored just one goal since his €57million move from Liverpool. Chelsea won’t consider a loan deal with a rival English club, but accept a move back to his homeland might be the best way to revive his stuttering career.
Villas-Boas is concerned that Torres will continue to struggle if he’s overlooked and left on the bench.
They will continue to monitor his form until the transfer window opens giving him ample time to turn the corner at Chelsea.
They have not considered selling Torres because his poor form has decimated his market value.
Torres arrived at Chelsea after scoring 81 goals in 142 appearances for Liverpool, but has since found the net just once in 23 games.
Cash-rich Malaga and Torres’ former club Atletico Madrid could offer him temporary sanctuary.
