The English Press took it upon themselves to end Radamel Falcao’s season-long loan by January. Reports have come out in the media to say Chelsea will be terminating the Colombia international’s contract due to his poor performances so far. But Jose Mourinho has come out to dismiss the rumours.
The 29 year-old forward hasn’t been able to excel in the the EPL following his loan move from AS Monaco in January 2014. The once-a-lethal finisher scored only 4 goals in 26 appearances for the Red Devils last season, leading to the club’s refusal to extend his stay, which comes at a price at the Theater of dreams.
His time at the Stamford Bridge has yielded no change in form for the former Atletico Madrid striker who has only managed 1 goal in 7 EPL games since his arrival. Currently earning £140,000 Pounds weekly in wages, Falcao is 3rd-choice behind Costa and Remy.
He was brought in the Summer with Mourinho’s influence, with the hope that he would provide competition for the other forwards, find his form and replace the out gone Didier Drogba. Despite a move away from Chelsea by Winter not in the books for now, it is not likely that the club will retain him after his deal ends at the end of the season.
Prior to the knee-ligament injury he had in 2014, Falcao bagged 28 goals in his last 34 appearances for Atletico. His lack of an eye for a goal recently could be assigned to his injury, and if he eventually leaves Chelsea, the club will no doubt go in search for another striker, as they cant rely only on Costa and Remy. Both have their injury woes, and a temperamental Costa is still prone to bans. Besides, he hasn’t been in sublime form this season, as he has only found the back of the net twice in the League.
