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.
