Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has stepped up his interest in Monaco striker Radamel Falcao and the Colombian has responded by welcoming a future move to the Premier League.
Metro report that the Portuguese boss went to watch Colombia’s 2-0 win over Belgium last night to keep a close eye on Blues stars Eden Hazard and Kevin De Bruyne, but he will have done well not to notice the outstanding performance by long-term target Falcao.
The Monaco striker put in a goal scoring performance in the Koning Boudewijnstadion.
And the former Atletico Madrid ace admitted after the match that he hopes he did enough to impress Mourinho and that a move to the Premier League would be too good to turn down.
He said: “He came here to see good football, played by good players and to see good spectacles.
“I hope to make a good impression on him in the match. Would I like to play in the Premier League? It’s one of the most important leagues in the world.”
Mourinho was reportedly interested in Falcao when he was manager of Real Madrid and it is well known that Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is a big fan of the striker, indicating that he will be willing to pay whatever it takes to bring him to Stamford Bridge in the near future.
Falcao has netted nine goals in 13 Ligue 1 matches for Monaco since his £50 million move from Atletico in the summer.
Will Falcao be on the move this January or is he simply flirting? Let us know your thoughts below.
