Chelsea have agreed a season-long loan deal with Monaco
for Radamel Falcao, according to ESPN.
Falcao, who spent last season on a disastrous loan at
Manchester United from AS Monaco, has agreed a season-
long deal with Chelsea.
The Colombian had scored just 4 goals in 26 appearances
for the Red Devils, and will be hoping for better days when
he kits up at Stamford Bridge.
The former Atletico player was keen to remain in England,
and chelsea boss Jose Mourinho sees him as the perfect
player to replace Didier Drogba.
“It hurts me that people in England think that the real Falcao
is the one we saw at Manchester United,” Mourinho said.
“He played in Spain and Portugal and I know him very well
because I was in Portugal and Spain. In Spain we were
together when he was at Atletico and I was at Real and I
know him very, very well… he is a great player.”
