Official: Torres joins AC Milan on loan

The Spanish striker has completed his move away from Chelsea and has been charged with the responsibility of filling the void left by Mario Balotelli at San Siro
Fernando Torres has completed his move from Chelsea to AC Milan on a two-year loan deal after passing a medical on Sunday, with the two clubs having agreed terms on Friday.

The Spain international has endured a troubled career at Stamford Bridge, struggling for form following his then British record-breaking €63 million move from Liverpool, but will now stay with the Rossoneri until 2016.

Goal reported the San Siro outfit's interest earlier this week, though there had been fears that the deal could collapse over the 30-year-old's €214,000-a-week wages, but the two sides have worked hard to reach an agreement.

Chelsea completed their hunt for a replacement moments earlier, with the club confirming the signing of QPR striker Loic Remy.

Milan, meanwhile, had been looking for a new No.9 following the sale of Mario Balotelli to Liverpool earlier this week.
