Jose Mourinho Confirms £140,000-A-Week Star Will Be At Chelsea In January

 Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has refuted rumours that struggling striker Radamel Falcao could be on his way out of Stamford Bridge in January.

Falcao, 29, endured a torrid time while playing for Manchester United on loan last season, bagging four goals in 26 appearances. However, he has shown no signs of improvement this term too under Mourinho at Stamford Bridge as has managed just one goal in seven appearances for the Blues. The Colombian’s goal came in the 2-1 defeat to Crystal Palace in August.

One of the deadliest striker in the world during his time at Porto and Atletico Madrid, the Colombia international is rumoured to be unwanted at Chelsea as the club are looking to cut short the loan deal in January in order to return him to Monaco.

Falcao was brought in by Mourinho in the summer as a replacement for Didier Drogba who left Chelsea at the end of last season, but the 29-year old has been behind both Diego Costa and Loic Remy in the pecking order due to his loss of form.

The Colombian, who earns £140,000-a-week at Stamford Bridge [per the Daily Mail] scored an impressive 28 goals in 34 appearances during his lasts season at Atletico Madrid and since the knee injury he suffered in 2014, Falcao has been disappointing with a sharp decline in his performances.

Should Falcao leave Chelsea in January, the west London outfit could be forced into scouring for another top notch forward, with Valencia’s Paco Alcacer reportedly on Mourinho’s January transfer wanted list. Costa’s temperament and injury history mean the Brazil-born forward will need a back-up in case he becomes unavailable.

The 27-year old former Atletico Madrid striker bagged his second Premier League goal for Chelsea against Aston Villa at the weekend, but drew blank on Tuesday night as the Blues had to settle for a draw versus Dynamo Kiev in their third group game of the Champions League.
