Athletico would never sell to Real Madrid, Barca stupidly don't want him. No one else can afford him in Spain or Italy. He either stays in Athletico or comes to England.
Chelsea doing a cash+Torres Swap for Falcao makes the most sense. Torres was athletico's captain as a teenager, and they are possibly the only team in the world that would actually want him. Chelsea might have to pay a percentage of his contract though for the next 4 years. EPIC FACEPALM
