Chelsea retain interest in injured Radamel Falcao

Published Add your comment

Chelsea are still keen on adding Radamel Falcao to their ranks in the summer despite the serious knee injury the player sustained, according to the Daily Mail.

The Colombian striker has been a long term target for officials at Stamford Bridge and their interest remained despite the fact that he moved from Atletico Madrid to Monaco last summer.

Rumours of discontent in the south of France boosted Chelsea chances of landing Falcao with £60m thought to be enough to seal his signature.

However, a serious cruciate ligament injury has ended Falcao's hopes of performing at the World Cup and it was presumed that Chelsea's interest would come to an end.

But the word is that Jose Mourinho is still keeping tabs of Falcao and is monitoring his recovery closely with a view to buying him in the summer.

It is thought that although Falcao will almost definitely miss the World Cup in Brazil, he should be fit for the opening day of the season in Ligue 1.

Falcao is ready to bring an end to his short stay at the principality club in exchange for a move to an elite European club.

The Blues are keen to bring in a world-class striker in the summer and have also added PSG's Edison Cavani and Atletico Madrid's Diego Costa to the shortlist.
