Radamel Falcao could leave Chelsea in January window

Radamel Falcao's stay at Chelsea could be over by as early as January according to the Mirror.

The Colombian forward joined the Blues on loan over the summer after a disappointing spell with Manchester United in 2014/15.

He scored just four goals at Old Trafford last term and while Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho vowed to get the best out of the former Porto forward, he's managed just one league goal in seven appearances, of which just one was a start.

The Mirror claim that Falcao has grown frustrated with his lack of opportunities so far, which have been few and far between despite the fact that lead striker Diego Costa has been struggling with injury. 

The 29-year-old has fallen so far from grace that he didn't even make the bench for Chelsea's vital 2-0 victory against Aston Villa over the weekend, and the Mirror say that Falcao is concerned that his lack of game time could effect his place in the Colombia national team.

Any move away from Stamford Bridge would be complicated, however; Falcao is on loan from Monaco and Chelsea would have to get the Ligue 1 side to cancel the agreement.

Reports in Spain say that Barcelona could be interested in his services and a January raid is possible, although that is unlikely.


Diego Costa was on the scoresheet as Chelsea picked up their first league win since their victory over Arsenal in September,

The win means Jose Mourinho's side are now in 11th place, with 11 points from their first nine Premier League games. 

Do you think Falcao is Mourinho's biggest ever transfer mistake?
