The deal that has seemed inevitable has reportedly finally been completed, however not as many would had thought. The Guardian is reporting that Monaco has agreed to a deal with Chelsea for Columbian striker Radamel Falcao.
Falcao, who is currently on international duty at Copa America will undergo extensive medical tests at Chelsea upon the competitions completion to confirm a £4 million season long loan.
This may come as a surprise to many as Jose Mourinho was quite outspoken over the Columbianís talent and a permanent move seemed likely. Falcao will now have a single season to recapture the form that saw him become one of the most feared strikers in the world.
If Falcao can do this then his potential value could increase dramatically, turning this into a win-lose situation for Chelsea if they attempt to secure his services permanently.
This move does throw a spanner in the works at Chelsea as Loic Remy has begun to question his immediate future with the Blues. Remy reportedly wants more first-team football before Euro 2016 but Falcao would most likely get the nod before the Frenchman.
Mourinho has implemented Remy out wide towards the end of the season however, possibly showing his plans for Remy.
Chelsea now potentially controls one of the best attacks in the world. Will this move prove beneficial for Chelsea and Falcao or will it just produce yet another flop?
