Chelsea fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern seem more than a little bit excited after the Daily Mirror claimed that the club are willing to offer a major sweetner in the Radamel Falcao deal.
The club have long been looking at the star striker and are keen to make their move for the forward who in recent weeks has been linked to Manchester United and also Real Madrid. Chelsea have a long history of spending big money on star forwards and this time it seems that they are determined to get one who will actually score goals after Fernando Torres and Andriy Shevchenko both turned into big money flops.
Atletico Madrid are not keen on letting Falcao leave but realised they have no choice and now are set to push for not only as much money as they can but also for their current on-loan keeper Thibaut Courtois to be included as part of the deal. The Belgium international has been impressive at the Vicente Calderon yet Petr Cech is still number one at parent club Chelsea and Courtois is willing to make his move to Diego Simeone’s side a permanent one.
Will Chelsea offer Courtois as bait in the Falcao deal? Rate this rumour below.
