AC Milan want to send Torres back to Atletico Madrid in exchange for Cerci

Atletico Madrid head coach Diego Simeone remained coy on the possibility of Fernando Torres returning to Spain.

As the globe prepares for all the holiday parties to come this week, Transfer Talk is similarly busy, rounding up an early peek and January's moves.

Torres going home to Madrid?

AC Milan have been forced to recently deny reports that they are looking to cut short Fernando Torres' miserable Serie A loan spell, but The Guardian reports that the San Siro side have opened negotiations with Atletico Madrid over the striker regarding a potential swap deal for Alessio Cerci.

Juanfran: If Real Madrid are God's team, Atletico are for the humble

Diego Simeone has praised his side's second half performance over Athletic Bilbao in their La Liga clash on Sunday.

Juanfran has hit back at Sergio Ramos' praise of Real Madrid as "God's team" by suggesting that Atletico Madrid are "the team of the humble," reports AS.

Atletico edged both Real and Barcelona last season to land the Liga title, though Diego Simeone's men lost the Champions League final 4-1 to their city rivals.

Los Blancos' success in Lisbon saw them qualify for the FIFA Club World Cup tournament this month, which they won after beating San Lorenzo 2-0 in the final on Saturday.

Raul Garcia scores on a penalty kick for Atletico Madrid.

Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone praised attacker Antoine Griezmann after his hat trick fired their team to a 4-1 comeback win at Athletic Bilbao in Sunday evening's La Liga meeting.

Atletico were 1-0 down at halftime at San Mames, and had looked like a team badly missing suspended top scorer Mario Mandzukic and creator Koke.

Player Ratings: Griezmann hat trick caps Atletico's memorable year

Atletico Madrid manager Diego Simeone was full of praise for his players ahead of their final game of the year.

What a difference 15 minutes in a room with Diego Simeone can make.

Atletico Madrid went in trailing 1-0 at halftime to a greatly superior Athletic Club at San Mames on Sunday evening. Los Rojiblancos had wobbled and were outplayed by their host, which did not let them settle into any kind of rhythm. They were outfought and unusually sluggish in defence and did not look worthy of the tag La Liga champion.
