Radamel Falcao edges closer to Chelsea

After hours of talks and email correspondence back and forth, Colombia international, Radamel Falcao is set to be announced as the latest signing made by reigning English Premier League champions Chelsea.

The former Atletico Madrid striker spent last season on loan at Manchester United from AS Monaco with the Red Devils having the first refusal on him. However, following some really timid displays throughout the campaign, the club chose not to sign him up.

However, Jose Mourinho is a huge admirer of the former Porto man and has said that he will show the Premier League that Falcao is still one of the deadliest strikers in the game today. The Colombian is currently on national duty in Chile for the Copa America but is eager to finalise his move to Stamford Bridge during the tournament which means that an official announcement could be forthcoming in the next few hours or so.
