Reliable sources can confirm that the purported Falcao move to Chelsea is as genuine and certain as they come. The player was said to have orchestrated a Stamford bridge-move via his agent, Jorge Mendes, and it is said something is very likely to work out as per a deal before the week runs out. The Colombian departs for the Copa America soon, and he has hinted at his desires to sort out a transfer before the competition starts, following his disappointing season at the Old Trafford, which made them show him the exit when the term ended.
The AS Monaco player was signed on a season-long loan from the French club on transfer deadline day by the Red Devils, and they paid £6 million pounds upfront for his services, with an option of signing him on a permanent deal, as they thought he was going to rekindle his great form in the EPL after missing the world cup through injury. His deal also gulped £265,000 pounds on a weekly basis through his wages, and he just didn’t deliver. 4 goals, and just 4 full EPL matches, the club wasn’t pleased, and they aren’t patient for one more chance.
But being a Mourinho favorite ever since his Atletico days, the Special One is believed to be interested in securing his services for the coming campaign, as Chelsea are looking for options to boost their forward line. And it has been said that the 29 year-old has agreed to a pay cut. Chelsea will be signing him for around £20 million pounds, and it is believed that Mourinho’s tutelage might make Falcao rediscover his great form that once made him a toast of many clubs around Europe 3 seasons ago, Chelsea inclusive.
