Chelsea are facing a battle with AC Milan and Sevilla for the signature of Radamel Falcao, reports The Mirror.

The Colombian striker has returned to AS Monaco after failing to impress during a season on loan to Manchester United but is expected to leave on a permanent basis this summer.

Monaco have told Falcao that they can no longer afford his £285,000-a-week wages and his agent Jorge Mendes is busy looking for new clubs.

One of those clubs is Chelsea, who have opened preliminary talks with Falcao's representatives over a potential transfer.

However, Jose Mourinho will have to fend off interest from the Serie A and La Liga before he can land the 29-year-old.

Dream teams

AC Milan have been in talks with Carlo Ancelotti, who recently left Real Madrid, and want to bring Falcao to the club to play under the Italian in a managerial/player dream team.

Sevilla are also ready to make an offer as they prepare to play in the Champions League after qualifying through their Europa League triumph.

They have Carlos Bacca, Falcao's international team-mate, already at the club and are hopeful their star man can help coax the Colombian to southern Spain.

Point to prove

Chelsea will be a tempting offer for Falcao, however, who certainly has a point to prove in English football.

He scored just four goals for Manchester United in a disastrous season at Old Trafford, but has seemingly done enough to convince Mourinho of his ability.
