Chelsea “Close” to Completing £45m Radamel Falcao Signing

By on December 19, 2013

Chelsea are reportedly close to completing a stunning move for AS Monaco’s star forward Radamel Falcao.

The 27-year-old Colombian is apparently prepared to leave Monaco, and a rumoured bid from Real Madrid is now no longer on the table for the striker. Roman Abramovich is now ready to break the bank and bid big after a number of poor performances from Chelsea’s strikers this season.

The Colombian is apparently unsettled at the Stade Louis II side, only months after arriving at the newly rich club.

Falcao shares the same agent with Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho, and that could be a motivating factor in determining if Falcao commits to Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea’s strikers have been struggling so far this season, with Fernando Torres plagued by injuries, and Demba Ba and Samuel Eto’o trading places as bit-part players.
