Jose Mourinho hints at big summer move for Radamel Falcao

Published Add your comment

Jose Mourinho has fuelled speculation that Chelsea will move for Radamel Falcao this summer, by virtually telling the striker that he’s too good to be playing for Monaco.

According to the Express, whilst playing down transfer rumours linking the Blues with a move for either Zlatan Ibrahimovic or Edinson Cavani, the Special One let on that a move for Falcao would be one that would suit both club and player.

"I have a team, but no striker," Mourinho reportedly said.

"Falcao does not have a team. A player like him can't play in front of 3,000 people. Monaco is a club to end [your career with]."

The Colombian hitman is relatively new to Ligue 1, having only joined his current club for a whopping £51million. However he is said to be unsettled at Monaco, and could well see a move to Stamford Bridge as the ideal way to revive his European status.

What’s more, Mourinho himself would likely be the first to tell you that he is unhappy with the goal haul from his three frontmen so far this term.

The trio of Fernando Torres, Demba Ba and Samuel Eto’o combined only have managed 19 goals in 67 combined appearances in all competitions, and despite the fact the club sits top of the Premier League, the need for a prolific striker is paramount.
