Chelsea have agreed a deal with AS Monaco to sign Radamel Falcao this summer.
Falcao’s move to Chelsea is expected to be another season long loan move rather than a permanent deal.
The Colombian striker returned to Monaco after Louis van Gaal decided not to extend his loan spell and Chelsea have seemingly swooped to secure him early in the window.
Last season was a disaster for Falcao in the Premier League but with a year of rehabilitation under his belt, he’s now in as strong a position as ever to fully recover from his injury woes.

United simply couldn’t take another risk on Falcao after such a poor campaign last season and with Monaco desperate to get the Colombian’s wages off their books, Jose Mourinho proved to be the man ready to take that challenge on.
There are no guarantees at all Falcao will return to his goalscoring form at Chelsea next year but it’ll certainly be at the back of every United fans’ mind.
