Radamel Falcao's Premier League nightmare is about to get worse with Chelsea determined not to to sign him on a permanent basis at the end of the current campaign. The Blues have already made a decision to drop the striker, who is on a season-long loan from Ligue 1 club AS Monaco, despite being just eight games into the 2015/16 campaign.
According to the Mirror, the Stamford Bridge outfit are not interested in making the deal permanent as he continues to struggle to adapt to the Premier League. This is déjà vu for the Colombian international, after Manchester United rejected a chance to make his deal permanent following a similar loan spell from the French club last season. The Blues, like the Old Trafford club, have the option of making his deal permanent at the end of the campaign.
The Colombian international managed just four goals in 26 league appearances for the Red Devils last season, and is facing a similar drought in west London. The striker has managed to score just one goal for the reigning Premier League champions in seven league outings and is facing the prospect of being used sporadically by Jose Mourinho during this campaign.
Falcao, was one of the most feared marksmen in Europe during his time at Atletico Madrid. He scored 52 goals in 68 games for the Spanish capital club before joining the Ligue 1 club in 2013. However, the former Porto forward suffered a severe knee injury at the start of 2014, which ruled him out of the World Cup in Brazil and he has never been able to recapture his old form following the long-term injury.
Falcao still has two years remaining on his contract with the French club, who are keen to get the forward off their wage bill. It remains to be seen if the forward will return to the Principality at the end of the current campaign or possibly go out on another season-long loan. It is unlikely, however, that he will return to the Premier League for another spell.
