Chelsea interested in Radamel Falcao

Manchester United forward Radamel Falcao could complete a shock move to Chelsea this summer, according to the Mirror.

The forward, who is on loan at Old Trafford from French outfit Monaco, has endured a torrid time on English soil, however the report has claimed that he is looking to stay in England as he looks to get his career back on track. 

It appears, though, that Manchester United could reject the option to complete his signature on a permanent basis, with the striker having only managed to find the net on four occasions this term. 

Despite Red Devils chief Louis van Gaal constantly backing his Colombian forward, the player's long term future in Manchester appears to be far from certain. 

In fact, it would come as a major surprise if United took up their £44 million option to land in him in the next transfer window, with the same report from the Mirror suggesting that the club could look to sign him on a cheaper deal. 

English interest 

Despite United's concerns, Falcao could yet star in England's elite division next season, with a move to London a possibility for the struggling striker. 

In fact, the same report from the Mirror has claimed that the duo of Chelsea and Tottenham are interested in landing him ahead of the 2015/16 campaign. 

Chelsea fans will no doubt remember Falcao's stunning hat-trick against them in the Super Cup a couple of years ago, however the forward has been a shadow of his former self this season. 

It remains to be seen, however, as to how much the likes of Chelsea and Tottenham would be willing to pay for the striker if they stepped up their interest in him anytime soon. 

A big risk 

There's no doubt about it, whoever takes up the option to sign the striker in the next transfer window will be taking a huge risk. After all, he won't come cheap and he's failed to prove his credentials on English soil throughout the course of the campaign so far. 

With just four goals for the Red Devils, it would be a big surprise if Van Gaal and Co. decided to sign him. A move to Chelsea would prove a surprise, but Mourinho may well believe that he can get the best out of the Colombian, while Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino could be excited by the prospect of partnering him alongside Harry Kane in attack. 

Perhaps the best of Falcao in England is yet to come, but a move away from Old Trafford is surely needed.
