Chelsea are desperate to offload Fernando Torres.

The Telegraph says Blues boss Jose Mourinho wants Torres sold so to avoid foreign quota problems.

He is pushing to offload £50 million flop Torres, but clubs are being put off by the £20 million asking price and the Spaniard's £175,000-a-week wages.

Chelsea hope that Atlético Madrid may take Torres back, while Monaco are understood to have looked at his situation in case Radamel Falcao leaves.

Should Chelsea fail to sell Torres or midfielder John Obi Mikel, who has not generated much interest, Mourinho may be forced to consider a Paris St-Germain offer for the goalkeeper Petr Cech.
