The Sunday Times are reporting this morning that Radamel Falcao has agreed personal terms on a one-year loan transfer to Chelsea.

José Mourinho is ready to help the Colombian “reach his level again”. As Jose said in a typically loaded comment: “It hurts me that people in England think that the real Falcao is the one we saw at Manchester United”.

The Times notes:

Falcao has chosen Chelsea after Mourinho promised to handle the striker in a manner which proved beyond Louis Van Gaal during the Colombian’s loan season at Manchester United.

According to sources close to the deal, Falcao is now “100%” committed to Chelsea with only the details of what could be a loan or a full transfer to be finalised with AS Monaco.

The Sunday Telegraph add that the deal is now “90% done”. Let’s call it 95% done as an average.

A good buy?

By the way, surgeon José Carlos Noronha, who worked on Falcao’s damaged anterior cruciate ligament, has also treated ex-Chelsea players Didier Drogba, Ashley Cole and Arjen Robben in the past. Agent Jorge Mendes, who represents Falcao and Mourinho, is a known admirer of Noronha’s skills.

So there’s that.
