Chelsea should avoid spending £60m on Falcao

Now the idea of spending £60 million is nothing new in recent times but it will smash the current British record which is currently held by Chelsea (£50 million on Torres) - but would Falcao really be an ideal choice?

Now don't get me wrong I'm a big fan of the star and a year ago I was praying that Chelsea would sign him but now looking at the prices of other strikers around Europe I am not so sure.

Falcao is fantastic and in fine form at the moment but he's 27 which is the middle, nearing the end of his prime (unless he ends up doing a Pirlo or Ibrahimovic and just gets better with age). I don't think he'll be a long term answer for Chelsea.

Also the price of football has grown so much but if you dig deep enough you'll still find bargains; just look at another striker in fine fine form Robert Lewandowski, who will go for a mere £7 million, less than Demba Ba.

If you do the maths Lewandowski is 24 so he'll get another 11 years whilst Falcao will only get 8, assuming they retire at 35.

Honestly Chelsea can save even more money as they have a perfectly fine striker with mass potential out on loan in Lukaku, so would signing Falcao be a good idea?

I think £60 million is just too much, only two players are really worth that and more and they're clearly the best two players in the world.

So to sum things up, a £60 million bid for Falcao, a year ago yes, now it'll have too be a no.
