The 29-year-old, who is currently on a season-loan at Stamford Bridge from Monaco, was one of Europe’s deadliest strikers during his two-year stay at the Vincente Calderon.
However, in recent years, the Colombian has failed to replicate his impressive displays for Atleti.
The summer transfer window may be over, but the rumour mill is omnipresent. Despite domestic leagues and European competitions in full flow, there are a lot to speculate as we anticipate the ‘fast approaching’ January transfer window.
According to the Italian media outlet Calciomercato, who have cited the British Press, Chelsea striker Radamel Falcao could leave the club in the upcoming January transfer window. The Colombian has endured a miserable loan spell so far at Stamford Bridge side since his arrival in the summer and has failed to make any sort of impact at the club.
However, the media have brought forward an interesting story on the matter. Fenerbache, who are line with the 29-year-old have come out and made a statement, as per the report, in which they have ridiculed the Fotomac newspaper, the latter who claim that the club are willing to sign Falcao.
Fenerbache claims that their transfer committee are not considering making a move as they are happy with their current set of strikers. However a statement read, “Considering how keen Fotomaç is to make the transfer happen we give them permission to go ahead and sign him for us.”
Having said that, it will be interesting to see if Falcao does at Chelsea after the January transfer window.
Uruguay captain Diego Godin has urged Chelsea to keep faith with Radamel Falcao despite his struggle to reproduce his old Porto and Atletico Madrid form since a severe injury.
The 29-year-old striker was one of the most feared strikers during his time in Spain but, since suffering major knee damage in March last year, he has flopped at parent club Monaco and while on loan at Manchester United, And he has yet to make any kind of decisive impact after being borrowed by the west Londoners.
But defender Godin, who played with him at Atletico, said: “Falcao is looking for the confidence he had before his injury.
“He is at a great team and he will get the run of games he needs – then the goals will come.”
Colombia coach Jose Pekerman added: “We all know his capabilities and I see he still has the will to fight, to reverse the situation.”
