Chelsea boss Mourinho rubbished rumours linking a possible January exit of Radamel Falcao.

Falcao is pondering over terminating his loan deal at Chelsea in January if he continues to warm the reserve bench instead of running in the field, Reports from the Telegraph claimed.

The Colombian striker was again sidelined for Saturday’s clash over Aston Villa which the Blues won by a 2-0 margin. Speculations again fuelled, he may return to Monaco to ply his trade on first team football.

29-year-old Falcao has managed to bag just 193 minutes of Premier League action after joining Chelsea netted just one solitary goal in a shocking defeat against Crystal Palace.

Ahead of the Champions League away clash against Dynamo Kiev when Mourinho was asked about Falcao’s future at Stamford Bridge, he quickly replied: “I don’t know if it’s true because to me he says absolutely nothing in relation to that, and I speak with him every day. It’s strange that the press knows something I don’t know and my club doesn’t know. We don’t have any information about this.”

Mourinho insisted the Columbian striker has to prove he is better than Diego Costa, who scored in the last match against Aston Villa, if he dreams securing more play time for Chelsea.

“He has to give us more than Diego. We normally play with one striker and I go for the performance level. It’s a direct competition, two players for one position, and the best one plays.”

Mourinho also clarified about his trip to Kiev for the Ukraine-Spain Euro 2016 qualifying match was nothing but monitoring his own players, not a scouting trip to watch Andriy Yarmolenko, a rumoured hot target for many clubs.

“When people start some rumours they have to think a little bit before the rumour,” Mourinho said. “Why? When Chelsea has Pedro, Hazard, Willian, Kenedy, [Bertrand] Traore and [on-loan Juan] Cuadrado, Victor Moses.

“We cannot make a collection of wingers. When people want to make rumours they have to find players in positions where we don’t have so many.”
