The news is finally out that the Chelsea has fixed a price in words with Monaco in order to procure Radamel Falcao for the whole season on loan.
This is supposed to be a move, which could have some sort of an impact on the current future of Loïc Rémy with the Premier League champions.
Falcao is currently placed at Copa América with Colombia. He is planning to make a very quick shift over to English football after he didn’t have a satisfying loan spell when he was at the Manchester United, the last season.
There was a fortnight of talks between the Chelsea hierarchy and his agent, Jorge Mendes regarding the same.
During his 29 appearances for Louis van Gaal’s side, this 29-year old striker managed to score only four goals.
Moreover, during the finale of 12 Premier League games, he only had a single shot at his target.
Post this debacle; Manchester United didn’t bat an eye lid before passing up the chance of creating a permanent deal for around £43.2 million.
There are possible chances that Chelsea would have a similar situation following summer when they slowly progressed to paying £35 million.
Apart from this, they have also agreed to pay a fee for the loan, which is worth £4 million, up front.
Currently, Falcao is earning £265,000 a week, which is stated under the contract at Stade Louis II. This was the amount, which United provided last term, although it is silently understood that a portion of that amount would be waived in order to progress to Premier League champions.
The highest earner at Chelsea now is Eden Hazard who earns around £200,000 a week and there is no way that the new person can match this amount.
When Falcao had his time at the Old Trafford it was initially hampered by an injury. Though, he didn’t bother about that and survived at Atlético Madrid and Porto, at the expense of Chelsea during UEFA Super Cup 2012 where he scored hat-trick.
Following this, he had a critical knee ligament injury, which didn’t allow him to play in the World Cup finals last summer.
Meanwhile, José Mourinho, who had a connection with Falcao by sharing the same agent, has lost Drogba during summer.
He spoke about the admiration of Falaco in DirecTV Sports last week saying that he knows him well from the Portugal and Spain days.
He also said that for a player with that capability and level, it was quite embarrassing that people from England thought he was at Manchester United.
Upon the deal completion for Falcao, this would leave Rémy to ponder upon his future. He has been seeking some serious reassurances on whether he would be playing before Euro 2016.
Whether they could match up with the fee, which is required to force Rémy away remains a mystery.
The fact, Falcao’s arrival with £43 million move could hasten departure of Atlético’s Antoine Griezmann.
