Falcao opens Chelsea door

Published Add your comment

Porto striker Radamel Falcao looks set to follow Andre Villas-Boas to Chelsea, with the 25-year-old admitting that a move to England next season is now more likely than ever.

"I am leaving things up to my agent," Falcao told the Daily Star.

"I am very calm about the situation but I know there has been some movement.

"If Chelsea is interested in me then all that needs to happen is for negotiations to take place."

Falcao moved to Porto in 2009 from River Plate, and has scored 41 goals in 50 appearances since. The star is believed to have a £26 million release clause in his contract, with Porto president Jorge Pinto da Costa insisting the price won’t be lowered for his now ex-colleague.

"If there are termination clauses we have to prepare for the possibility that a player will leave at the value set out,” Pinto da Costa said.

"But I am not going to negotiate that price with anyone.

"As with Villas-Boas, there was no conversation with Chelsea, just the money paid into our account to release him."
