Fernando Torres excited by AC Milan 'adventure' ahead of Chelsea move
Fernando Torres spoke of his excitement at the new chapter in his career after arriving in Milan to finalise his move from Chelsea.
The Blues and AC Milan announced the agreement of a two-year loan deal on Friday evening, taking the 30-year-old to the expiration of his contract in 2016.
The Rossoneri confirmed on Twitter on Saturday that Torres had landed at Milan's Linate Airport, where he was greeted by 200 fans, and posted a picture of the player holding an AC Milan scarf before announcing he was at the Madonnina Clinic undergoing his medical.
Torres told the Milan Channel he could not wait to get started working under coach Filippo Inzaghi after a frustrating and underwhelming three and a half years at Stamford Bridge.
"I'm really happy to have arrived in Milan,'' he said. "I can't wait to do the medical, meet the fans and my new teammates.
"I cannot wait to start this new adventure. I spoke to the coach [on Friday] and I am really pleased to work with a coach like him
"He was a great goalscorer and definitely understands hat the role of a striker is. I am sure that he can teach me and help me a lot in this adventure.''
