Flopped signing could come back to haunt Chelsea with shock Middlesbrough transfer

According to reports from Bleacher Report, Middlesbrough are considering a shock transfer swoop for Chelsea loan flop Radamel Falcao.

The Colombian international was once revered as the top finisher in world football, amassing 142 goals in 176 appearances during spells with FC Porto and Atletico Madrid and firing both clubs to Europa League titles.

But the South American assassin has suffered a drastic fall from grace since signing for Monaco in a £54million deal three summers ago, notching up just eleven goals before being loaned out to the Premier League.

A season on loan at Manchester United saw the 30-year-old bag just four Premier League goals and he fared even worse at Chelsea last term – scoring just once and managing only twelve appearances across all competitions.

But according to Bleacher Report, Falcao wants one final crack at the Premier League and newly promoted Middlesbrough have emerged as shock suitors, expressing an interest in signing the former River Plate star.

It’s further claimed the club’s positive relationship with representative Jorge Mendes could play a pivotal role in securing the Riverside outfit a potential transfer coup.
