Atletico Madrid star Raul Garcia has claimed that the club’s former star Fernando Torres will be welcome back at the Vicente Calderon should he decide to join the club. Torres has become a £ 50 million signing for Chelsea, but his poor form with the blues could see him leave the club in the summer. There were a lot of links with Inter Milan a few weeks ago, but it is understood that the Italian club are no longer in the race to sign the 30-year-old. Due to his poor form, Torres is now worth only around £ 20 million as valued by Chelsea.

It has been rumoured that athletic have made a £ 10 million offer for the player, but even then they are quite far away from completing the deal due to a number of reasons. Atletico do not have the means to sustain the £ 8 million per season in wages commanded by Torres. This coupled with Chelsea’s £ 20 million valuation could see the deal drop. For the moment, a return to Spain looks like the ideal solution for all parties. Even though Atletico Madrid recently brought in Mario Mandzukic from Bayern Munich, the return of Torres will be hailed by fans.

Even after more than seven years after his departure, Torres still remains as an icon in the Atletico Madrid eyes.
“I speak to him [Torres] a lot and he still feels very strongly about this club. His life has been defined by what he experienced here and he is another option just like any other that the media have mentioned. Any great player that can come here will be welcome. If we took every transfer story seriously we would only have about two or three players left here. The club has to manage these things, but Miranda is an important player for us,” said Garcia.
