It has been revealed that Chelsea have clinched a deal for former Manchester United striker Radamel Falcao.
United passed on the option of signing Falcao permanently last week, returning him to parent club AS Monaco.
Marca claims that Falcao’s agent, Jorge Mendes, has agreed a deal in-principle with Chelsea over the Colombian’s return to England next season. Mendes is now ironing out the final details of the transfer.
Falcao will become a Chelsea player after Colombia’s Copa America campaign. The centre-forward has agreed to take a hefty pay-cut on his ASM wages to make the move happen.
Chelsea and Monaco will announce the deal formally after the Copa.
