A quartet the Stamford Bridge side could sign with the transfer funds said to be made available to the incoming Blues boss this summer.
Chelsea will reportedly target three or four players with an estimated £100m transfer warchest being made available to whomever replaces Rafa Benitez, with that in mind we look at four players the Blues could sign with the money available, additions that could well help the West London club mount a genuine Premier League title challenge whilst re-asserting themselves on the Champions League stage following their fall at the first hurdle of the competition this season.
Radamel Falcao (Atletico Madrid)
Estimated value: £50m
Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich will want to bring in a ‘Marquee’ signing or two to help erase the memory of what has all in all been a poor season for the former Champions League title holders.
Radamel Falcao could be the ideal man to lead the Chelsea attack, the Colombian is quick and a big physical presence who could thrive in the Premier League.
Talk of a possible move to Monaco for the 27 year old may be a tad premature, Abramovich will certainly be keeping tabs on the Atletico Madrid goal machine.
Falcao netted 36 goals in his first season at the Vicente Calderon and has amassed 34 in just 40 appearances in all competitions this term and given Atletico Madrid’s history of selling star players there could well be a good chance they will elect to cash in on the former FC Porto man.
Abramovich may opt to use former Atletico Madrid man Fernando Torres as a makeweight in any such move, killing two birds with one stone.
