Radamel Falcao has completed his season-long loan move to Chelsea after agreeing personal terms with the London club, according to Sky Sports.

Done deal

Following speculation around the 29-year-old’s future after his disappointing season with Manchester United, in which he only bagged four goals, Jose Mourinho was quick to do his business, and the Colombian will join Chelsea on the club’s pre-season tour to the United States.

Falcao was quoted as saying: "I am very happy to be joining Chelsea and can't wait to start training and help with our aim of retaining the league title and being successful in Europe."

Struggles for Falcao

This follows a disappointing Copa America for the striker, who failed to find the net in any of his four appearances at the tournament.

The whole team had a frustrating fortnight as Colombia were knocked out by Argentina in the quarter-finals, and mustered just one goal (through centre back Jeison Murillo) in 390 minutes of competitive football.

Meanwhile, Chelsea youngster Mario Pasalic is reported to have completed a loan deal in the opposite way to Falcao, penning a one year loan deal to play for AS Monaco. The midfielder spent last season at Spanish side Elche, scoring three goals in his 31 appearances.

Chelsea fans, will Falcao prove to be a good signing? Let us know your thoughts in the comments box below.
