Manchester City attempts to steal Chelsea transfer target Radamel Falcao
Chelsea will fight a fierce battle with Manchester City for the rights to the Colombian goal-scoring machine Radamel Falcao. The Atletico Madrid star has reportedly agreed to the personal terms of a transfer contract offered by the Champions League winning side Chelsea.
Manchester City plan to make a last minute swoop for Radamel Falcao by offering him a larger salary and special incentives. Chelsea brass is outraged by Manchester City’s approach, but they can do nothing but hope Radamel Falcao does not break the gentleman’s bond between them.
Radamel Falcao has received a lot of endorsements from Chelsea players ever since the London club started to show interest in signing him. Interest from Manchester City has restarted this process.
Chelsea defender David Luiz has urged Radamel Falcao to join him at Stamford Bridge. The Brazilian international claims Radamel Falcao will make the right move by joining Chelsea in the winter transfer window.
David Luiz was up against Radamel Falcao on Wednesday night during a friendly between Brazil and Colombia, which resulted in a 1-1 draw. David Luiz reckons joining Chelsea is for players dreaming of acquiring silverware and glory.
“I’m happy when there are great names attached to Chelsea,” David Luiz was quoted by the Daily Mail. “He’s a great player.”
“It would be a good choice for Falcao to come to Chelsea. All of the players would be happy because he would be a great player.”
It is believed that Chelsea are signing in Radamel Falcao as a replacement for their £50 million misfiring striker Fernando Torres. The 28-year-old Spaniard has scored only seven goals in 18 appearances for Chelsea this season.
On the other hand, Radamel Falcao has become one of the top transfer targets in the football market due to his goal-scoring abilities. The 26-year-old striker scored 36 goals in 50 appearances for Atletico Madrid last season. This season Radamel Falcao has scored 13 goals in 10 appearances for Atletico Madrid.
Chelsea’s billionaire Russian owner Roman Abramovich is highly impressed by Radamel Falcao, which is why he is ready to fuel the huge bid. If Radamel Falcao arrives at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea can boast about one of the most threatening attacks in the entire world.
Chelsea’s attack will include Eden Hazard, Oscar, Juan Mata, Fernando Torres and Radamel Falcao. Spanish media outlets claim Atletico Madrid have put a £40 million price tag on Radamel Falcao.
