Radamel Falcao.

Jiangsu Suning want Radamel Falcao to join Ramires in China

Published 10 Comments

Chelsea fans may still be in shock with the £25million deal that has taken Ramires to a little-known Chinese club called Jiangsu Suning, but the Nanjing outfit aren't messing around this January.

They moved quickly to sign the Brazilian midfielder, completing the transfer before many of us had time to learn how to pronounce their name. However, they could be coming back to Stamford Bridge again in the near future.

According to the Daily Mail, they have now set their sights on Chelsea's mega-flop Radamel Falcao. The Colombian is not, of course, a permanent member of the Blues side, but still has six months left on his loan deal from Monaco.

As a result, Jiangsu Suning officials would have to go through both the Premier League and Ligue 1 outfits if they are to seal a deal for Falcao, but they should have little problem agreeing on a fee.

Chelsea have already tried their best to get rid of Falcao with only a serious thigh injury preventing his return to the south of France. Whether he stays until June or not, he has likely played his last game for the west London outfit.

Incredible wages

Similarly, Monaco are less than keen to take the 29-year-old back because they can no longer afford his incredible £265,000-a-week wages.

That should not be a problem for Jiangsu Suning, who are reported to have offered Ramires £200,000-a-week. But moving to China would almost certainly be a step in the wrong direction for Falcao and the end to his career on football's biggest stages.

End of the road

Of course, he has already fallen far from his best after two dismal seasons with Manchester United and Chelsea and looks a shadow of his former self. A serious knee injury coupled with a long spell as a substitute has seen his once lethal touch completely abandon him.

If he moves to China's Super League, he will undoubtedly find goals easier to come by and can rest assure that he will never want for money again, but it would likely be a one-way trip; no amount of goals in Chinese football would convince a European side to bring him back.
