Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois is confident that Radamel Falcao would be a great acquisition for the club.

The Belgium international played with the striker when he was on loan at Atletico Madrid – a club where Falcao forged a reputation as one of the most prolific goalscorers in the game.

But English football fans have still yet to see the very best of him, after he experienced an unsuccessful first foray into the Premier League with Manchester United last season.

Falcao scored just four times in 26 appearances for the Red Devils as he made his return from a serious knee injury that kept him out of last year’s World Cup.

And it seems as though Chelsea could now look to benefit from Louis van Gaal’s decision not to extend the forward’s Old Trafford stay.

Courtois would seemingly welcome the chance to play with his former teammate once again.

As quoted by The Guardian, the Belgian said: “I know Falcao very well. He’s a very good boy, he’s a good friend of mine so if he comes, great. It’s the decision of the club but he would be a very good player for Chelsea.”

The 29-year-old also played with Diego Costa during his stay in the Spanish capital, with the duo netting 54 times between them during the 2012-13 campaign.

If that form and understanding between the two could be rediscovered at Chelsea then Jose Mourinho’s side will be even harder to catch next season.

Chelsea fans: Do you think Falcao would be a success at Stamford Bridge?
