Reports are out claiming that Manchester United flop Radamel Falcao is keen to push through a move to Chelsea before the start of the Copa America.
The striker scored just four goals in 29 appearances for Louis van Gaal’s men last season, but has been named Colombia’s captain for the Copa America tournament, which starts in a week’s time in Chile.
Colombia’s first game is against Venezuela on June 14th and Falcao is eager to complete a move to Stamford Bridge prior to the start of the CONMEBOL tournament.
It is believed AS Monaco, who loaned the 29-year old to Old Trafford last season, are looking for a £5 million loan fee from the Premier League champions.
Falcao said: “It has been speculated a lot about my next team, but I tried to stay calm.
“I would like to continue in England, we’ll decide (my next team) in the coming weeks.”
Falcao shares the same agent as Blues boss Jose Mourinho.
