Competition: Premier League
Market: Torres to Atletico Madrid
Odds: 1/1 @ 888 Sport

Chelsea striker Fernando Torres has been rumoured to be leaving the London club this summer, with manager Jose Mourinho looking to fund a summer spree of deal.

Diego Costa, of Atletico Madrid, has agreed terms on a £32M deal taking him to Stamford Bridge, and now it appears Torres could be going in the opposite direction.

Torres, 30, has endured a testing campaign with Chelsea, scoring just five goals and making five assists.

A move back to his former club Atletico Madrid has been talked about all season, and as a result 888 Sport are giving odds of 1/1 for the striker to return to the side where he first made his name in football.

The Red and Whites won the La Liga title in 2013/14, while finishing as runners-up in the Champions League. They had a great last year, but are being ripped apart as a host of players are exiting.

With Atletico set to lose their top striker Diego Costa, coupled with the exit of another Spanish front man in David Villa, who has joined MLS side New York City, they may well consider Torres as a cheap replacement, providing he can find his scoring boots next season.
