Torres agent after today's talks: Milan move possible

A representative of Fernando Torres gave a positive assessment of today's talks with AC Milan over the striker's future.

Fernando Torres's representatives have been in contract talks with AC Milan today and there seems to have been progress.

Chelsea appear to have signed off on a season loan and the injury to Diego Costa doesn't seem to have presented a stumbling block to a deal.

However, Milan have been facing an uphill task in meeting Torres's wage demands and yesterday's reports in Italy suggested they were far short of the striker's expectations.

But after a meeting with Milan directors today, one of Torres's agents, Antonio Sanz, gave an upbeat response to the prospect of a move.

"The meeting went well," Sanz told MilanNews.

"Torres to Milan is a concrete possibility.

"We will still take the time to consider things before we give a reply. I can't say any more than that. Milan are a great club."

Sanz's comments seem to hint at the deal being on track despite suggestions in the Italian media that the Italian club had already begun to seek a fallback option.
