LONDON (AFP) - English Premier League club Chelsea's striker Fernando Torres has potentially opened the door on a return to Atletico Madrid, after expressing an interest in working under former team-mate Diego Simeone.

"In football, you never know," he told the Friday editions of several British newspapers. "You don't know where you are going to be tomorrow, in a week's time, or in 10 years' time.

"I've had a lot of admiration for 'Cholo' (Simeone), ever since we were team-mates. He taught me a lot in the seasons we played together at Atleti."

Torres, 30, has failed to impress since joining Chelsea from Liverpool for a British-record fee of £50 million (S$105.3 million) in January 2011, scoring only 44 times in 161 appearances.
