Falcao Leaving Chelsea in January

Chelsea transfer shock: Club holding talks to re-sign former striker

Radamel Falcao will see yet another loan spell at England end unsuccessfully. The Colombian striker has failed to establish himself in the Premier League with a failed loan spell at Manchester United last season and more recently with underperforming Chelsea.

Surely this was his last chance to prove he has the credentials to perform at the highest level and yet again has failed. Falcao along with fellow loanee Alexandre Pato may not have a future with Chelsea as incoming boss Antonio Conte looks to revamp his side

Falcao has only managed to record a single goal and has been as disappointing as the current Chelsea side struggled to defend their crown. However, Falcao may well look to justify his performance by a lack of consistent game time for the Blues with just one Premier league start.

Additionally Falcao ‘s ongoing knee injury has resulted in him being sidelined for a prolonged period. Although his tenure in England may be over; Falcao remains a striker capable of causing havoc to any defense. Which is why interest in the Colombian remains high. Monaco may well look to cash in on Falcao and clear up their wage bill.

Significant interest has been coming in for the striker from River Plate with their president ecstatic about linking up with Falcao once again. River Plate have been in considerable contact with the player and have publicly stated their willingness and desire to welcome Falcao back.

Falcao was instrumental for the Argentine side before sealing a move to Porto in 2009 after an impressive 4 year spell. River Plate have been successful in luring back some of their top performers and they will be hoping that is the case with Falcao.
China could be a possible destination for Falcao with numerous Chinese clubs expressing interest in the Colombian striker. A move was attempted in the January window which was unsuccessful . Could Falcao follow other big stars such as Ramirez and Alex Teixeira to China?

A move away could help Falcao reestablish himself as one of the lethal strikers of the game. At 30, Falcao will be aware of time ticking and making the right transfer move will help prolong his career and have a memorable end. Falcao has had tremendous success with Porto and Atletico Madrid where he was a power house upfront. Can Falcao secure a move and get back to his best?
