French giants confirm deal for Chelsea striker this January

Chelsea flop Radamel Falcao looks to destined to remain at Stamford Bridge until the summer as originally planned, report Sky Sports.

The Colombian forward has endured a miserable spell on loan at Stamford Bridge, carrying on from a similar time spent at Manchester United last season.

Despite carving out a reputation as one of the most feared marksmen in world football during his time with Atletico Madrid and Porto, the 29-year old has since lost all trace of such form.

A serious knee injury while with AS Monaco, who paid £50m to sign him, seems to have derailed his career.

Having been ruled out since late October, there had been suggestions he would return to the French club and have his loan arrangement cut short due to another injury.

However, those at the Stade Louis II have poured cold water over the notion he could make a swift return to the principality.

‘We have decided not to take him back to Monaco for the moment’, revealed vice-president Vadim Vasyilev.
