Premier League champions Chelsea will cancel Colombian striker Radamel Falcao’s loan deal at the club according to media reports in France.
The former FC Porto, Manchester United and Atlético Madrid hitman is in France via French news outlet La Provence to discuss his future with his parent club AS Monaco after what has been a disappointing 18 months loan spell with English heavyweight giants Manchester United and Chelsea.
Falcao moved to AS Monaco in 2013 in a £50m deal from Diego Simeone’s Atletico Madrid before suffering a season-ending cruciate knee ligaments injury thereby missing the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil and has evidently struggled to re-enact the form that made him one of the most feared strikers in world football.
The 29-year old’s injury-hit time at Stamford Bridge has seen him score just once in 11 appearances this season and would be readily welcomed back into the fold at AS Monaco as the club bid to maintain their current league position, which would usher in UEFA Champions League football next season.
His place at Chelsea could likely be taken by English striker Patrick Bamford, who had a disappointing 6-month spell at fellow London side Crystal Palace and is back with the Blues.
