Striker rumours rumble on
Radamel Falcao's father says the striker will move to England in January and some reports claim a deal has been done with Chelsea.
Chelsea were heavily linked with a move for the Atletico Madrid striker all summer but a deal failed to materialise and boss Roberto Di Matteo has since said he was not interested in strengthening his attack. However that has not stopped speculation suggesting a deal has already been done and Falcao senior has now also said his son is likely to head to England when the window re-opens. "There are three teams interested - Manchester City, Chelsea and a Russian team," he has been quoted as saying. "Falcao has always wanted to play in the Premier League. "Ever since he was a boy he has loved Chelsea and has always thought it would be an honour to play for a big Premier League team." When asked if Falcao would move to England in January, he added: "Yes, it's very likely." Falcao showed what talent he has when firing home a hat-trick against Chelsea on Friday night but only time will tell whether a deal has been agreed for the striker.
