Chelsea Given Fresh Falcao Hope As Striker Denies Madrid Reports

By on January 22, 2013

With the January transfer window now open for business we’ll be keeping you up-to-date with all the latest transfer gossip. Today, Chelsea are given fresh hope of landing Radamel Falcao.

Colombia Radamel Falcao

Chelsea have been given fresh hope of landing Radamel Falcao after the Atletico Madrid striker denied reports linking him with a move to Real Madrid, according to Sky Sports News.

Falcao is one of the most prolific strikers in world football and the report claims he’s been constantly linked with a move away from Atletico in recent transfer windows.

Sky Sports suggest Chelsea have been tracking the Colombian hitman for some time but it looked like they may be set to miss out after the 26-year-old and his agent were understood to have had dinner with Real Madrid president Florentino Perez to discuss a move to the Bernabeu, while Atletico president Enrique Cerezo was quoted in the Mirror earlier this month as saying Falcao had already ‘signed something’ with Madrid.

The former Porto striker was also believed to have attended the recent Ballon d’Or presentation evening with Real star Cristiano Ronaldo, further intensifying rumours he could be set to quit the Atletico for their city rivals. However, Falcao has hit back at these reports claiming they’re all ‘lies’:

“Everything is a lie.”

“Lately there has been all kinds of reports about me,”

“All those that say I ate with Florentino are false. Neither is it true that I travelled with Cristiano Ronaldo to the Ballon d’Or gala.”

Falcao is quoted as saying by Sky Sports

So despite all the recent reports to the contrary, Falcao’s future seems far from decided. If Chelsea could lure the South American to Stamford Bridge they would surely have one of the most feared attacks in Europe. A front line consisting of Juan Mata, Eden Hazard and Falcao could be devastating.

But a move is still far from a done deal and there will no doubt be plenty of competition if Atletico decide to cash in any time soon, but I would personally love to see Falcao in the Premier League next year.

Would Chelsea fans like to see Falcao come to the Bridge in the summer? Get involved in the comments section below.

    Let me remind you far back to 2011 when fernando was coming,a week before he scored two wonderful goals,though falcao rite now he is a hitman just like toress at liverpool,so im very sure if falcao should come and looses his form ,what will u do? Hit out him again…sure falcao is a very good striker and i love him just like other hot striker my great club has signed over years,the likes of crespo ,shevy ,fernando and many more,what i would implore is to rally arround and detect what really is going wrong with our english hot strikers that were not succesfull at bridge unlike the african striker ….fernando i love and support even if u cant score a goal again am not blind to see ur hard work because i know inside you,you are very good and great…thumbs up you are the best….

    It will be very good if Facao can finally sign for Chelsea, Then if the deal went through, then we can be talking of Chelsea beating any team that comes their way.
