It has been a controversial year for Chelsea FC. They have had troubles with their manager and owner and the fans have been in disgust. 

But there is one thing that the club and its fans do agree on. The fact is that any member of the Chelsea FC community would be more than welcome to embrace the man that is Radamel Falcao.

Rumours this week have shared with us that owner Roman Abramovich is preparing a €91 million bid for the Colombian international. Reports suggest that Falcao would be receiving approximately ££200,000 a week for four years to move to Stamford Bridge.

If you do the calculations means that the Colombian will be earning around 10 million pounds in one season.

Even if these rumours are true, there are still some questions that need to be answered. For example, "Who will Falcao replace if anybody?" and "What will happen to Fernando Torres?"

The 27-year-old has done very well at Atletico since his transfer there boasting a record of 63 goals from 78 appearances. 

Many are led to believe that Atletico will be reluctant to sell Falcao. If you cast your mind back to the European Super Cup 2012, the match between Chelsea and Atletico, you should be able to recall that Falcao slotted 3 goals past Chelsea to help his team win 4-1 in total after goals from Miranda for Atletico and Gary Cahill for the Blues.

This is not the only news involving Chelsea in the past 2 weeks, with stories emerging that Rafael Benitez had a training ground scuffle with the players, which could be the fact that leads to the announcement of resignation at the end of the season.

Which leads me to my next point, Jose Mourinho, "The Special One", when Benitez leaves, will Mourinho return to Chelsea?

Many questions need to be answered for Chelsea in the next few weeks if not days. Let's hope that Abramovich makes some sensible decisions, for once.
