Falcao signs Chelsea contract

Striker will be on £130k-a-week

AS Monaco striker Radamel Falcao signed his contract with Chelsea on Monday, ahead of a season-long loan move.

The Colombia international will be announced as a Blues player on July 19 or 20 in Canada, where Chelsea will be training, according to well-known Colombian TV show Gol Caracol.

The 29-year-old was in poor form while on loan at Manchester United last season, with him only scoring four goals in 29 appearances for the Red Devils.

The striker has agreed personal terms with the Chelsea board and will be paid £130,000-a-week in his stay at Stamford Bridge.

However, despite his bad run of form, Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho thinks he can still bring the best out of the Colombian and believes he still has great ability and is delighted that the former Atletico Madrid and Porto star has decided to sign a contract with the Premier League champions.

Falcao‘s arrival may see the end to Loic Remy‘s Chelsea career as he contemplates leaving the club rather than staying on and being third-choice striker.

If Remy does indeed leave, The Blues will then turn their attentions to Queens Park Rangers striker Charlie Austin.

West Ham United and Southampton are two clubs showing interest in Remy according to reports.
