AS Monaco star and Chelsea target Radamel Falcao has spoken out about his future with the Ligue 1 side following the end of his loan deal with Manchester United, reports the Daily Express.
The Colombian endured a terrible time on loan at Old Trafford last season, scoring just four goals in 29 appearances.
United initially splashed out a fee of £16 million to take the forward on a season-long loan deal, whilst also paying him a weekly wage of £190,000 according to The Guardian.
However, his poor form during the just-finished season meant that the Red Devils ultimately decided to turn down the chance to sign the striker permanently, via ESPN.
In sending Falcao back to Monaco, United have opened the door to their Premier League rivals, and Jose Mourinho is apparently keen on the Old Trafford misfit. According to the Telegraph, Chelsea have already begun discussing a potential move for the forward with his parent club Monaco.
Mourinho will be aware that the departure of Didier Drogba will leave a hole in the squad and clearly sees the former FC Porto man as a potential replacement for the legendary Ivorian. Falcao could compete with Loic Remy for to opportunity to support Diego Costa, who endured hamstring troubles throughout his debut campaign.
With the Copa America about to start, the former Atletico Madrid ace has decided to leave his agent in charge of his future.
As reported by the Daily Express, he began: “Is my future at Monaco? Right now I’m thinking only about the Copa, there has been a lot of talk but I am relaxed about it.
“My agent is the one who takes care of all of that.”
In signing former Arsenal man Cesc Fabregas last summer, Mourinho demonstrated his willingness to recruit players who have previously featured for Chelsea’s Premier League rivals. He may be set to repeat the trick with Falcao.
