Chelsea have been constantly linked to Radamel Falcao here in the Football Transfer Tavern over the last couple of months– actually they are being linked with him just about everywhere but a summer move is no certainty. The club may well need to consider some other options should the Colombian decide that a move to West London is not for him. Roman Abramovich has already seen his number one managerial target turn him down flat in Pep Guardiola and did not have a substantial enough contingency plan for that. Should he be snubbed again the club will have to draw up a potential list of transfer plan B’s to pursue.
Add to this the fact that it will be all change at the Bridge in the summer with a new manager coming in, possibly with his own ideas of exactly who he wants to sign or potentially even someone who Falcao does not want to work with and it means that a list of alternatives may well be on the cards.
Of course the club will not be short of options with a great deal of world class strikers open to a move in the summer and given the money available at Chelsea , just about anyone is an option for Roman Abramovich’s men.
