Report: Falcao to be Mourinho's Welcome Gift at Chelsea

MOST COMMENTED

German tabloid Bild, the newspaper that broke the news about Borussia Dortmund playmaker Mario Goetze’s move to Bayern Munich this summer, is claiming that Jose Mourinho is now “almost certain” to return to Stamford Bridge to coach English giant Chelsea next season, and that Atletico Madrid’s $93 million striker Radamel Falcao is to be the Portuguese tactician’s “special welcome gift” from Blues owner Roman Abramovich.

Mourinho, who won two Premier League titles, two League Cups and an FA Cup in his three seasons at Chelsea, has reportedly fallen out with key players and staff at Real Madrid, and his departure from the Santiago Bernabeu has been rumored for months. Earlier this year, the self-styled "Special One" said, "after Real Madrid, England will be my next step.”

Meanwhile, Falcao has been on Chelsea’s radar for even longer than Mourinho. Blues striker Fernando Torres, who would be competing with Falcao for a place in the Chelsea team next season, said he'd welcome the Colombia international to Stamford Bridge with open arms. "When you play for Chelsea, you're always hoping big players come and the big names are always being linked with the club,” the Spaniard said. "Since I came to Chelsea, only top players have come, so it would not be a surprise if we signed Falcao."
