Radamel Falcao could return to Monaco as Chelsea look to replace him

Published 4 Comments

Radamel Falcao has been having checks with Monaco ahead of a potential return to the club, according to the Guardian.

The report claims that the Colombian striker, who has endured a torrid opening half to the season at Chelsea, could be in line for a return to the Ligue 1 outfit if he manages to prove his fitness.

Falcao, of course, was set to spend the entire campaign in west London, but has struggled for opportunities and endured a torrid time with injury.

It appears, then, that after an 18-month stint in England, including a disappointing season on loan at Manchester United, Falcao could finally leave the country in an attempt to get his career back on track.

But where would that leave Guus Hiddink and Chelsea? Well, the same report from the Telegraph claims that the Blues have plans to replace him in this transfer window.

Premier League hot-shot Jamie Vardy, who has scored 15 goals in 20 Premier League appearances for high-flyers Leicester City, appears to be on the club's radar.

The England international has well and truly come to prominence throughout the course of the campaign, but it's far from certain as to whether the Stamford Bridge club will make their move.

While the Telegraph claim that Vardy is a potential permanent signing, the same report claims that Atletico Madrid striker Jackson Martinez is also under consideration.


Martinez only signed for the Spanish club in the summer, but it appears that he could yet complete a surprise loan move to Chelsea.
