Radamel Falcao is desperate to join Chelsea and is willing to take a pay cut in order to move to the champions, according to Daily Telegraph.

After a string of poor performances for United this season and a lack of playing time under Louis van Gaal, Falcao was sent back to Ligue 1 side Monaco earlier this week.

Having signed on a one-year loan deal last summer, the Colombian was fully expected to secure a permanent move to United, but failed to live up to their expectations, scoring just four goals.

Super agent Jorge Mendes has recently stated that the former Atletico Madrid striker would join an ‘elite’ club and it is understood that he is now working on a potential move to either Chelsea, where boss Jose Mourinho is very keen.

Mendes has close connections with Blues boss Mourinho after the latter’s time at Real Madrid and the Portuguese agent is now trying to convince him to sign Falcao and give him a chance in English football.

And, it is understood that the Falcao has told his representative to inform Chelsea that he would take a HUGE pay cut to join them this summer.

Juventus are also interested, whilst Tottenham Hotspur have been linked.
