There are two people that most Chelsea fans want to see at Stamford Bridge next season. One of them is Jose Mourinho to return to take over the club and start the second coming of the Abramovich era and the other is Radamel Falcao!.
According to the written press this morning, Mourinho has all but sealed his return and has instructed Roman Abramovich to do whatever it takes to go out and sign Falcao.
There are differing reports in the media over the fee for the Colombian striker but the general consensus is that a fee of around £45-£50m will persuade Atletico to sell him. One report even states that the buyout clause in his contract is around £51m. If Atletico refuse to budge, Roman will activate the clause by paying the money and then it comes down to the player negotiations.
One paper has reported that Falcao could earn as much as £200,000 per week if he were to come to Stamford Bridge but as I said yesterday, the stumbling block could be his partner who is pregnant and has stated openly that she wants to stay in Spain and raise their child there.
Falcao has scored 66 goals so far in two seasons in La Liga in addition to his impressive goal scoring record at Porto. He has become one of the hottest properties in Europe and has been tracked by Chelsea ever since AVB was hired as manager.
As for Mourinho, watching the performance of Real Madrid last night as they were humbled 4-1 by Dortmund, they are facing a mountain to climb to try and turn things around. The players never turned up last night and were out fought all night long.
Trailing Barcelona by as many points as they are in La Liga and with a second semi final exit in the Champions League in the last two seasons, Mourinho's departure from Madrid could come sooner than expected.
Let's hope that when that happens, he gets on a plane and flies straight to London and back to Chelsea with Falcao!
