Stamford Bridge side ready to spend spend spend.
The Daily Mirror is of the impression that Roman Abramovich will lavish interim boss Rafa Benitez with riches so as to help beef up his Blues squad in January.
One would imagine that the trio named by this source were already very much on the Chelsea wish-list long before the Spaniard rolled into town but nonetheless they are still players who could help the West London side challenge for the title, but they won’t come cheap.
The Daily Mirror believes that Chelsea are willing to pay £40m+ for the 26 year old Colombian but Atletico Madrid’s great start to the season, ten wins in their first dozen La Liga matches, may well be getting in the way of Chelsea’s interest in the former FC Porto man.
Falcao has slammed in 49 goals in 62 matches since his move to the Vicente Calderon side and he could well be the prolific marksman the Blues could do with having ahead of their ludicrously creative midfield. Currently placing off-form Fernando Torres ahead of Eden Hazard, Oscar and Juan Mata is not working and back up options Daniel Sturridge and loaned out Romelu Lukaku may well not be up for the task either.
If by January Atletico have fallen away then a big money offer may seem more amenable to both the player and his employers.
