Official: Falcao joins Chelsea on a season long loan

It has been made official that Radamel Falcao has joined Premier League Champions Chelsea from AS Monaco for the whole of the upcoming 2015/16 season.

Falcao of course spent last season on loan at Manchester United, where he endured an unsuccessful time as he struggled with injuries and form. It remains to be seen whether Jose Mourinho can help guide him back to top form.

Falcao has also reportedly taken a wage cut for the opportunity to join Chelsea, who see him as a replacement for the departed Didier Drogba, and likely the back-up to last season’s top goalscorer Diego Costa.
