CHELSEA KEEN TO OFFLOAD FALCAO
CHELSEA fear they will be lumbered with Colombian flop Radamel Falcao until May. The 29-year-old is on loan from Monaco but Chelsea are keen to cut the deal short in January. However, Monaco are reluctant to start paying Falcao’s £265,000-a-week wages again. Falcao waived a chunk of his wages to join Chelsea, who pay him around £135,000 per week, on top of a £4million loan fee to Monaco. Chelsea are therefore relying on rival clubs to take Falcao.
Sportsmail understands there has been little interest, though Valencia, who have close ties to Falcao’s agent Jorge Mendes, could be an option.
