Falcao on way to Chelsea
The Columbian scored 17 goals in the Europa League this season, including in the final as Porto sealed the quadruple last season under Andre Villas-Boas, the youngster manager to win the competition in his first season as manager.
But with the 33-year-old now at Chelsea, Falcao appears to be the first player willing to jump ship as The Blues look likely to trigger his £26.5 million release clause.The forward's agent, Jorge Mendes, has informed the Premier League side that Falcao would be interested in a move to Chelsea and the club will make an official move for the player in the coming days, armed with a contract worth £5 million a year.
Following Jose Mourinho's move to Chelsea in 2004, the 'Special One' brokered the moves of Ricardo Carvalho and Paulo Ferreira, and Villas-Boas, dubbed the 'new Mourinho' is set to do the same.
