Falcao says Mou

Radamel Falcao is set for another crack at the Premier League, with the former Manchester United loanee expected to complete a move to Chelsea next week.

Citing reports in Portugal, where the striker scored 72 goals in 87 games for Porto, the Daily Star claim a deal has been agreed with his current club Monaco.

Falcao is currently with the Colombian national squad at the Copa America, but Jose Mourinho’s side are expected to confirm the transfer sooner rather than later.

United eye Surprise, Surprise move for Cillessen

Ajax goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen is the latest name to be touted as a potential replacement for David De Gea at Manchester United.

The Dutch international was Louis van Gaal’s first choice shot-stopper at the World Cup, and the Daily Telegraph
report that the pair could be reunited at Old Trafford.

Cillessen would provide healthy competition for Victor Valdes, who still hopes to stake a claim for the number one jersey.

English clubs at the Bacca the queue for Carlos

Manchester United and Arsenal could be set to miss out on Sevilla striker Carlos Bacca, who is thought to prefer a move to Roma.

According to the Daily Mail, the 28-year-old is keen on a move to Rome and has already turned down lucrative offers from clubs in China and the Middle East.

Bacca scored twice in this season’s Europa League final, earning Sevilla a place in the 2015/16 Champions League, and may yet stay with the Spanish club.
