Boost For Chelsea As AS Monaco Striker Seeks Summer Exit

Chelsea target not happy with current club.

Check in to Colombia vs Greece

A move to Chelsea could be back on this summer for Radamel Falcao after it has emerged that the striker wants to leave current club Monaco, according to Fichajes.net.

The Colombian international has established himself as one of the best strikers in the world in recent years, and first attracted strong interest from Stamford Bridge during his time with Atletico Madrid, whom he left for a £51m switch to Monaco just last summer.

The talented goal-poacher was one of numerous big-money signings by the ambitious Ligue 1 side, but it is now thought that he is looking for a quick exit from the club after an unhappy season halted by injury.

Falcao will miss the chance to play at this summer’s World Cup after picking up a knee injury in a cup game, which he allegedly feels was poorly handled by the club and by then-manager Claudio Ranieri.

The likes of Manchester City and Real Madrid have also been linked with the 28-year-old in the past, but Chelsea may still be in the hunt for new forward players this summer despite edging closer to a £32m deal for Atletico Madrid star Diego Costa.

With the likes of Fernando Torres and Demba Ba likely to leave the Blues in the near future, Falcao and Costa could form a new-look strike force for Jose Mourinho’s side.
