Chelsea have completed the signing of Colombian hit-man Radamel Falcao on a season-long loan from AS Monaco, the Premier League champions announced on their official website.
The 29-year-old striker emerged as a summer target for Jose Mourinho over the last month, as the Portuguese coach keen to fill in the void space left behind by Didier Drogba.
Falcao spent his last season on loan at Manchester United, but struggled for goals at Old Trafford, managed just four goals in 26 league appearances for the Red Devils.

After Falcao’s ACL injury, he’s not been the same and he will never be as good as he was at his peak. Not a lot of players recover from that — Sam➑ (@AndxrsAssist) July 3, 2015

Why would Falcao go to a club like Chelsea when all he is going to do is spend time on the bench — Callum MiIls (@CallumMiIls) July 3, 2015
