Monaco striker Radamel Falcao has played down reports he could join Chelsea in the January transfer window.
The Columbian international, who joined Monaco from Atletico Madrid for £52million in the summer, has reportedly been identified by Jose Mourinho as the man to end Chelsea's striker problems.
However Falcao, who has scored nine goals in 15 games for Monaco so far this season, has refuted claims he wants to the leave the Ligue 1 side in order to move to the Premier League.
Speaking to the Daily Mail, Falcao said on his short-term future:
"I am very happy at Monaco and my wife is happy to live here.
"There is no problem with the coach, the doctors or the team."
News of Falcao's decision to stay at the Stade Louis II will put a major dent in Chelsea's January transfer plans.
Mourinho, who is desperate to sign a new striker when the transfer window re-opens in the new year, will now be forced into turning his attention elsewhere - with the likes of Edinson Cavani and Christian Benteke said to be on the Portuguese tactician's six-man striker wish list.
