Valencia in pole position to secure deal to sign Chelsea hitman

FalcaoChelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern have had their heads turned by reports from the continent, which suggests one of their most costly players could be on his way out.

Fichajes state that super-agent Jorge Mendes has started to look for a new club for misfiring client Radamel Falcao, who arrived at Chelsea in the summer for an expensive loan stint in the capital.

According to the report, Valencia are the favourites for the player’s signature as their lack of striking options up-top has made them Mendes main point of attention- but the Colombian’s wages could be a stumbling block.

Falcao has struggled in his time in the Premier League, scoring four goals whilst on-loan at Manchester United last season and only finding the net once for Chelsea; having been ousted from Jose Mourinho’s set-up.

Whilst Falcao’s form has been on a major decline, the South American previously starred at Atletico Madrid and Porto, an angle that Mendes will push as he tries to secure another big-money deal for his client.

Chelsea fans, just how big a disappointment has Falcao been? Let us know in the comments below!
