Jose Mourinho has hinted at swooping to sign Monaco forward Radamel Falcao, days out from the Colombian appearing at the Copa America.
Falcao was endorsed by 111-time Colombia international Carlos Valderrama to lead the nation to Copa glory, and he was the name on everybody’s lips – as Chelsea boss Mourinho said he was keen to help the 29-year-old succeed in England.
“It hurts me that people in England believe the real Falcao is the one seen at Manchester United,” Mourinho told DirecTV.
“He is a player that I know from [coaching against] Atletico Madrid, and if I can help Falcao to reach his level, I will.”
Falcao scored only four Premier League goals in 2014-15, and none since February – although he has struck four times at international level of late.
