Chelsea transfer news
Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has commented on the possibility of former Manchester United loan flop Radamel Falcao making the summer switch to Stamford Bridge.
The Belgian international, who played alongside the Colombian forward at their former club Atletico Madrid, has described his old team-mate as a friend and as someone who “would be a very good player for Chelsea”.
The Daily Mirror quotes Courtois as welcoming the potential addition of Falcao this summer, while today’s Daily Telegraph have revealed that the 29-year-old’s loan move from AS Monaco looks to be edging closer to completion.
Despite only scoring four goals for United in 2014/15, Falcao has previously starred at clubs like Monaco, Atletico and in Portugal with Porto, winning a number of trophies and scoring plenty of goals to establish himself as one of the best centre-forwards in world football.
It would appear that this means Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho is willing to gamble on signing him for next season, with a backup role perhaps most likely for the player, who looked slightly unfit and unable to play 90 minutes during his time at Old Trafford, following some injury problems during his time in Ligue 1.
With Didier Drogba already confirmed as leaving Stamford Bridge at the end of this season, it makes sense that the Blues could try to bring in another new front-man to replace the veteran Ivorian, who often filled in for Diego Costa during his time out of the team with repeated injury problems.
