Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has confirmed the signing of Colombian star striker Radamel Falcao ‘unintentionally’ in an interview. Recent reports suggest that Mourinho is keen to bring the star to Chelsea on a one year loan spell to replace Didier Drogba who left the club recently.
The Monaco striker has been heavily linked to a move to Stamford Bridge after his loan spell at Manchester United where he failed miserably scoring only 4 goals in the entire season. Despite the terrible performances Mourinho believes the player has the potential to make it big in Premier Leaggue.
He said: “We lost a striker [Drogba] who scored four goals in the Premier League, but three of these goals meant important points for us. A striker that was very experienced, who every minute was fantastic for us, even in the last 10 minutes to hold the ball, cool down emotionally the game.
“So we have to buy a striker because we want to have three strikers of a good level. We do not want to have just one. Then you lose a good position on the negotiation table.”
“It really hurts me that people in England believe that Falcao is the guy they saw at Manchester United,” Mourinho told DirecTV Sports.
“He’s a player I know, one that I’ve followed since Atletico Madrid and if I can help Falcao arrive at his level I will do it.”
Radamel Falcao is reportedly ready to take a huge wage cut to force a move to Stamford Bridge.
