Chelsea are looking to cancel striker Radamel Falcao’s loan spell in January but the Blues are struggling to offload him.
Jose Mourinho, who at the time of signing Falcao claimed he would bring the best out of the striker, is now keen to end his season-long loan spell from Monaco early. It will enable him to free up space in the squad for a new striker.
According to reports from ESPN, Chelsea need to agree to terminate the deal with Monaco and then find another potential suitor who would take him for the rest of the campaign.
Falcao, who scored four goals in 29 games for Manchester United last season, has cut a sorrow figure at the Bridge, managing only two starts in all competitions and scoring just one goal. Surely why would any club take the risk of signing a luxury player (high wages) in January when output from him is not guaranteed?
The interesting part is Monaco themselves are reluctant to take Falcao back to Stade Louis II (as if the attitude like do whatever you want with him, just don’t give him back to us) and they do want to pay all his wages.
As things stand, if Chelsea fail to reach an agreement with Monaco for the Colombian striker, the Blues will have to keep Falcao, who hasn’t featured for Chelsea since the end of October, till the end of the season.
