Chelsea agree loan deal for Falcao

Radamel Falcao will return to the Premier League next season after agreeing terms to join champions Chelsea on a temporary basis.

The Colombia international moved to Manchester United last September, signing a year-long loan at Old Trafford.

That agreement was with a view to a permanent move, but Falcao failed to fire at United, scoring just four goals in 26 league appearances.

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has previously hinted the club could make a move for the striker, and on Friday the switch was confirmed.

Falcao told Chelsea’s official website: “I am very happy to be joining Chelsea and can’t wait to start training and help with our aim of retaining the league title and being successful in Europe.”

The 29-year-old became one of the top strikers in European football with successful spells at Porto and Atletico Madrid, winning the Copa del Rey and UEFA Europa League with the Spanish side.

That led to his move to Ligue 1 with Monaco, however, the forward struggled to settle in France and, after being unable to find his feet with United, will rook to revitalise his career at Stamford Bridge under the guidance of Mourinho.
