Colombian international Radamel Falcao is expected to leave Chelsea this summer, after being informed by the club that they are not interested in turning his loan deal into a permanent switch.
The former Atletico Madrid striker has endured a horrid season at the club, scoring only one goal in 10 appearances.
His season has been badly affected by injuries, which has seen him spend the majority of the Blues’ campaign on the treatment table.

According to the Daily Mirror, the 30-year-old was hoping for a chance to work with incoming manager Antonio Conte, but he is being informed about the club’s decision.
With just three league matches remaining in the season, Falcao is set to end his second unsuccessful campaign in the Premier League, after having a poor spell with Manchester United the season beforehand, where he only managed to score four goals in 26 appearances.
His parent club AS Monaco, who signed him from Atletico Madrid in 2013, will be looking to offload the striker this summer, and it looks like a move to Serie A could be on the cards with AS Roma showing interest in acquiring the services of the 30-year-old striker.
However, I Giallorossi are reportedly reluctant to meet Falcao's £100,000-a-week deal, and are currently in negotiations with Monaco and the striker's representative for the possible switch in the summer.
If the deal with the Italian giants will not go through, Falcao might follow the footsteps of fellow Colombian striker Jackson Martinez, and make a big money move to China.
The 30-year-old was once regarded as amongst the best strikers in the world along with Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo and Barcelona’s Lionel Messi, especially after his heroics while playing for Atletico Madrid in La Liga, where he scored 52 goals in 68 appearances for the club.
However, a serious knee injury in 2014 turned his career upside down, and since then he never managed to recapture the form of his glory days.
