Here we are again, approaching yet another transfer window; and none other than Radamel Falcao is once more being linked to Chelsea.

After Jose Mourinho was spotted at the King Baudouin Stadium in Brussels watching Belgium succumb to Falcao’s Colombia last Thursday, rumours have been rife concerning the current state of the super-striker in Monaco. Predictably, these rumours have recently manifested into supposed bids and pre-contract discussions with the 27-year-old.

Surely even the most gullible Chelsea fan will not fall victim to the Sunday Express’ exclusive report that Falcao has ‘struggled to adapt to the lack of atmosphere at home games’; but considering the endless striker situation at the Bridge, you can’t blame the paper for trying their luck.
