Radamel Falcao and Diego Costa are set to be reunited at Chelsea, two years after playing together at Atletico Madrid, and talkSPORT have released this brilliant spoof video showing the two of them in a comical press conference.
Falcao could be confirmed as a Chelsea player by Saturday, according to fresh reports, with Jose Mourinho having decided to take a gamble on the Colombia international who flopped at Manchester United last season.
The 29-year-old will find himself playing second-fiddle to Costa for much of next season - a direct contrast to the situation at the Vicente Calderon, where Falcao was very much ahead of the Brazil-born Spain international in the Atletico Madrid pecking order.

The three-minute spoof video - which can be viewed by scrolling down to the video on this page - starts with a journalist asking Falcao if Costa is good enough to keep him out of the Chelsea team.
“No, I don’t mean to insult Diego.” Falcao replies, “but I’m the best striker at the club.”

Costa then says it’s good that Falcao is already used to the bench - because he’ll be seeing plenty more of it at Stamford Bridge - and mentioned that Liverpool rejected the chance to sign him, opting instead for Burnley striker Danny Ings.
Costa then says that Falcao looks like a ‘fat Michael Jackson’ - only with worse movement - and finishes by saying: “God only knows how he has managed to move to this club.
“No wonder it’s only another loan; nobody wants to sign him for real!”
These videos can usually be a little bit hit or miss, but talkSPORT have done an excellent job with this clip. Remember: it’s only a joke video, none of the translations are accurate, so don’t take it too seriously!
Mourinho has his work cut out with Falcao
Jose Mourinho believes he can help Falcao rediscover the world-class form he showed with both FC Porto and Atletico Madrid.
But his disastrous spell with Manchester United, in which he scored a paltry four goals in 29 appearances, suggests the Portuguese coach has his work cut out.
