Chelsea move imminent for Falcao?


Recommended Posts

Jose Mourinho has dropped the biggest hint yet that Chelsea may be interested in signing Colombia international Radamel Falcao.

The champions are somewhat short on firepower after Didier Drogba was released at the end of his short-term contract at the end of May, with Falcao reportedly a prime target.

The former Porto man spent last season on loan from Monaco at Manchester United, but failed to impress after scoring only four times in 26 Premier League appearances.

But Mourinho, speaking as if Falcao was already his player, has promised to reignite the fuse of the Colombian star, who famously scored a hat-trick for Atletico Madrid against the Blues in the 2012 UEFA Super Cup.

‘If I can help Falcao reach his level again, I will do it', Mourinho was claimed to have said on DirecTV Sports on Wednesday. 'It hurts me that people in England think that the real Falcao is the one we saw at Manchester United'.
Sources have suggested that, for the second successive season, Chelsea will raid their relegated neighbours Queens Park Rangers and make a move for English forward Charlie Austin, who netted seventeen times in the league alone last term, but Falcao appears to be Mourinho's number one striking option.
Falcao is away in Chile with Colombia for the Copa America which starts on Friday and is future is set to be resolved by next month at the latest. It is reported that Mourinho will make a loan move for Falcao at first, with the option to buy at a later date. United passed on an option to make his short-term agreement into a permanent £50million transfer, paving the way for Mourinho to make a move.
Would Falcao be a good choice for Chelsea? Have your say!
