The Rumour

The Chelsea owner will make funds available for Roberto Di Matteo to recruit a new striker, and Atletico Madrid’s prized asset is impressed by the European champions’ ambition.

Manchester City and Real Madrid are also interested in the 26-year-old forward, who scored a stunning hat-trick against Chelsea in the European Super Cup. But Falcao said: ‘Chelsea are champions of Europe and there is not much more to say than that.

Even after winning the Champions League they still go and sign players of the highest quality. Their ambition is clear.
