Chelsea & Spurs free to land Old Trafford flop

Chelsea and Spurs could sign Radamel Falcao this summer, with reports from The Express claiming that the Manchester United loanee’s agent has sounded out the two London sides about deals.

The Colombia international is currently on a season-long stint at Old Trafford following a dramatic deadline day switch last year.

United beat a number of teams to land the 29-year-old, and have invested heavily to pay Monaco the £6m fee required for the transfer as well as the forward’s £200,000+-per-week salary.

However, their faith has been repaid with just four goals, and reports have claimed that Falcao has accepted that he will not be kept on, despite a £43.5m clause being in place.

His agent, Jorge Mendes, has talked up the level of interest in his client already, and now it’s claimed that he’s approached both Chelsea and Spurs to gauge their interest in the former Porto and Atletico Madrid man.

The Blues lead the Premier League, but are short on cover for top scorer Diego Costa, while Tottenham have little in the way of options behind in-form England hopeful Harry Kane.
