Chelsea fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern are rarely underwhelmed, such is the talent and performances they’ve come to expect from their impeccable squad under Jose Mourinho in recent times.
However, an underwhelming feeling was suffered as recently as a few weeks back when it was reported that the Blues have all but signed Monaco’s Radamel Falcao on a season-long loan deal after reaching an agreement with the Colombian international.
How times change because if you had claimed to Chelsea fans a few seasons ago that they’d be landing Falcao and the blue bunting would’ve been out, a few Colombian dance moves would’ve worked their way into the bar and Falcao replica shirts would’ve been flying off the shelves.
The truth of the matter is that Falcao looks like a player on the steady decline which is ultimately a shame for the striker who looked oh so clinical in his time spent at Porto and Atletico Madrid.
Jose Mourinho has come out and claimed that he wants to help Falcao revisit the standards he set during his time spent on the Iberian peninsula but the sceptics are claiming that like Fernando Torres before him, Falcao looks beyond assistance.
The good news however is that Chelsea are reportedly still in the market for one more attacking signing this summer and this has got us wondering whether it could be any of these five in our gallery below.
