Chelsea to fund Falcao signing with Torres sale

Chelsea are determined to sign Radamel Falcao and would sell Fernando Torres in order to help them land the prolific AS Monaco striker, according to the Sunday Express.

It's reported that the west London outfit have made contact with Falcao's representatives after being informed that the 27-year-old is unsettled at his current club.

Monaco would be looking to recoup around £52m for the Colombia international, who Jose Mourinho watched in action on Thursday night against Belgium.

The ex-Atlético Madrid star could replace another former Atleti hero, with Torres expected to move on following a troublesome three-year spell at Stamford Bridge.

The Express claim the Spain international could move in the opposite direction, in a part-exchange deal, although it's unclear whether Torres would be open to a move to the principality at this stage.

Falcao has scored 12 goals in 16 matches for AS Monaco, but has reportedly struggled to adapt to the low crowds and lack of atmosphere at the Stade Louis II.

Promoted Monaco, who are managed by Claudio Ranieri, currently sit third in the Ligue 1 table after taking 26 points from their opening 13 matches.
