Torres in Chelsea-Destro deal?

According to The Times, Chelsea will offer Fernando Torres to Roma in exchange for Tottenham target Mattia Destro.

It had already been reported in Italian media that Roma directors Walter Sabatini and Mauro Baldissoni had travelled to London, as they were pictured getting on to the flight in Rome.

Thursday’s edition of The Times claims this trip was for talks with Chelsea over Destro, who has been heavily linked with Spurs.

They could even include Spanish striker Torres as part of the move, ending his often troubled time at Stamford Bridge.

Torres, who cost £50m from Liverpool in 2011, would join Roma on loan to help lower Destro’s £20m price-tag.

However, the Giallorossi would require Chelsea to pay some of Torres’ wages, which are currently £180,000 per week.
