Chelsea to return for Falcao in January?

Published Add your comment

Jose Mourinho is retaining a strong interest in Monaco striker Radamel Falcao, according to French newspaper Le 10 Sport.

The forward, who was linked with a host of top European clubs before making his €60million move to Monaco in the summer, is rumoured to be open to an early exit from the French outfit, and Chelsea are still keeping tabs on his situation.

Mourinho is in the market for a striker in January, with reports suggesting he is ready to let Demba Ba move on, and Falcao would most definitely provide the firepower he is after.

Having scored 34 goals in all competitions for Atletico Madrid last year and on eight goals already this term, the Columbian is one of the hottest properties in Europe.

It should come as no surprise then that the Special One wants to place him ahead of the likes of the misfiring Fernando Torres and the ageing Samuel Eto'o, but the Blues are certain to face stiff competition from Spanish giants Real Madrid.
