Atletico Madrid are considering ending Fernando Torres's nightmare £50million Chelsea move by taking the striker back to his childhood club.

And with Chelsea chasing Atletico's own striker Radamel Falcao - who has a £50m buy-out clause in his contract - a cash-plus-player swap deal is looming in the summer.

Atletico Madrid manager Diego Simeone, the former Argentina international who played with Torres for Atletico, was asked about the move on Saturday in Spain and said: 'Right now Fernando's playing for another team and we will have to wait until the end of the season, and we have to decide which players could come here.'
Simeone, speaking to Spanish Radio station Onda Cero, said: 'Fernando knows the history of Atletico Madrid, he knows what it means to play for this club. I don't need to speak about his ability as we were team-mates. I know how important he can be.'
Simeone also spoke about the possibility of Colombia striker Falcao, who has scored 25 goals in 28 appearances for Atletico this season, leaving, with Chelsea already in prime position to sign him.

I for one beleive he played at his peak during his Atletico Madrid days. Even though he was really good in Liverpool (and boy he was!), I can't help it but to think it was in Spain when he played the best.
I currently don't follow La Liga (getting tired of a two-horse race), but I can easily see Torres back at Atletico, provided they have what's needed to snatch him.

If they have the money, and I believe they won't sell Radamel Falcao for less than he's worth, which is a lot for today's standards, they should get him. It would be great for him to go back again, to play for he's club, where everyone loves him and he will feel much more motivated.

I agree. Torres has been an overall disappointment during his stay in Stamford Bridge.
I'd really like to see the real Torres again, if not in England, then be it in Spain.
I also agree with Falcao. Atletico bought it for way too much to just sell him cheap now. Even though I still think he is somewhat overhyped, I believe they can still sell him for a good amount while he's still hot.

To be honest I haven't seen Falcao play since he went to Atletico Madrid, because I don't watch much Spanish football, but his numbers speak for him: first season he was there he scored twenty four goals and in the second he has scored 21 so far in the league, but he's in the shadow of the crazy numbers Cristianp Ronaldo and Messi have each other. Also, I'm a bit concerned that moving to English football, which I believe he will, would be the best option for him and would suit his play, even thought he can score goals from everywhere and in any style.

If they are "forced" to sell Falcao, it will be for a good amount of money, and I see no reason why would they not spend half of that money (Chelsea will probably ask for 20/25 million euros for Torres) on Torres. They will need a real striker if they let go of Falcao, and although it may seem ridicolous to count on Torres to be a team's main striker right now, it may not prove that laughable in Spain, where the play is a lot more open than in England.

I really hope Torres leaves Chelsea soon. It hasn't been working in the past and it probably won't in the future. It's just so sad seeing such a young and talented player, not having the chance to show what he can achieve. A move to La Liga would certainly be great, not only for him but also for Atlethico Madrid who will gain a capable striker, provided Torres can groove into Atlethico's playing stile again.

Wouldn't be surprised to see Torres back at Atlético even if Falcao stays there. He's not happy at Chelsea and needs some sort of "rebirth" and get close to the levels he was in before joining Chelsea.

I think that would be a great trade for both parties. Radamel Falcão is the best striker in Europe and if they have questions watch his games. He plays in Atlético and he does what he does, just look at Atletico team and tell me what other player there has quality to play in the best teams in Europe. He does almost everything himself.


The Atlético Madrid is already small for Radamel and could be a good club for Torres reappear.
