As per the latest reports, Liverpool are keen to sign Chelsea transfer target and former Manchester United player Radamel Falcao this summer. It is believed that Brendan Rodgers want to add some fire power to his attack next season.
The Reds have already signed Danny Ings this summer and are looking to add the Colombian striker in their ranks. However, the Reds need to head to head with the Blues inorder to seure the deal.
Earlier reports suggested that the talks between Chelsea, Monaco and Falcao are in advancd stage and Mourinho believes that the deal is almost done. Chelsea are ready to pay his wages who is quite a sum considering their wage structure.
The Blues are ready to offer £275,000-a-week wages for the striker and Mourinho thought to offload January signing Cuadrado to make room for Falcao’s signing. But recently Mourinho said that he will keep Cuadrado next season which makes the signing of Falcao on loan difficult for the Blues.
The Blues will offer Champions League football for Falcao if he decides to take a huge wage cut. However reports from France suggest that Liverpool are also favorites to sign the striker as they want to sign the player on a permanent deal which helps French giants Monaco as they are currently facing FFP sanctions.
