Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has already announced the team’s plans for the upcoming transfer window, and they plan to be aggressive in their effort to repeat as Premier League champions.
These plans consist of pursuing two or three players, including Manchester United striker Radamel Falcao, who is looking to make a fresh start after a forgettable 2014-15 season.
“We have to buy a striker because we want to have three strikers of a good level. We do not want to have just one [transfer target]. Then you lose a good position on the negotiation table,” Mourinho said to ESPN FC.
Falcao only scored four goals for Man United this season while starting 14 games.
Although the 29-year-old struggled with his scoring in Old Trafford, he has shown much more potential in previous seasons, such as the 2012-13 season.
He scored 41 goals, including 28 for Atletico Madrid in La Liga matches.
Mourinho is hoping that Falcao can regain his form, which would be crucial considering leading scorer Diego Costa is battling a hamstring injury.
Fellow striker Loic Remy has also been hobbled, as he has endured a calf injury.
Despite their injury concerns, Chelsea still possesses other quality players such as Eden Hazard.
Falcao would make their squad even more dangerous though and provide insurance in case the injured stars don’t heal up soon.
