Recent reports suggest that Radamel Falcao is on his way to Chelsea on a season’s long loan. The Colombian only finished an unsuccessful loan at Manchester United, in which he played 26 games and only managed a measly four goals.
However, the striker has said he wants to continue his career in the Premier League and revealed that his future may lie at Stamford Bridge for the 2015/16 season.
Falcao, currently on international duty in the Copa America with Colombia, has been heavily linked with a move to Chelsea. He was quoted saying by Eurosport during an interview: "I'm just thinking of the Copa America and the squad, my staff are taking care of this."
Pressed further on his links to Chelsea by reporters after the 1-0 win over Brazil on Wednesday, he added: "It can be, you will know soon."
Chelsea is looking to bolster their strike force with Didier Drogba having left the club and injury doubts over Diego Costa. Also it looks increasingly more likely that Loic Remy will leave Chelsea having only played 18 games - starting six of them in the Premier League and the rest being only substitute appearances.
The club's Brazilian players were also asked about the possible arrival of Falcao after the game. Defender Filipe Luis said: "I played with Radamel Falcao at Atletico [Madrid] and he is a great player.
"I'm not sure if it's official but I'm sure that he would be very welcome and it would help Chelsea a lot to win trophies."
Midfielder Willian added: "Falcao is a great player a striker that knows how to score and I'm sure it will help up a lot; I hope he can be happy at Chelsea."
I’m sure Mourinho is the person to get Falcao out of whatever rut he is stuck in. Also, the fact that he used to play alongside Costa at Atletico Madrid will make it more familiar and easy to find the form he lacked during his loan spell at Manchester United.
