It would look as though Radamel Falcao is destined to move to nouveau riche outfit AS Monaco in the summer and Chelsea will have to turn their attentions elsewhere when it comes to finding the striker they can rely on for goals.
Robert Lewandowski of Dortmund has been mentioned a fair bit as he has impressed for the German club this season, especially in the Champions League this season, but may have his heart set on a move to Bayern Munich. Although he’s my preferred option and we should try sign him as he’s entering the last year of his contract, there isn’t much we can do if he is destined for the Bundesliga champions.
One of the shock transfer rumours as the summer transfer window approaches has been the one that has linked Manchester United’s Wayne Rooney with a move to Stamford Bridge. It’s obvious that the England forward is unhappy at the club and would probably jump at the chance to join Chelsea, but who wants to spend a king’s ransom on a stroppy footballer who smokes like a chimney and is on £250,000-a-week?
Italian TV station Mediaset believe that Napoli’s Edinson Cavani is the man for Chelsea and expect him to line up for the Europa League finalists at the beginning of the 2013/14 season. The reports suggest that a fee of £42.5 million and a wage of £145,000-a-week has already been agreed between the two clubs for the Uruguayan hitman.
Cavani has scored over 30 goals in each of his three seasons at Napoli and is enjoying his best goal return this season scoring 37 with one game remaining. If he could successfully replicate this sort of form in the Premier League then he would have a major impact at a club like Chelsea, who are a forward, midfielder and perhaps another defender off from being a title challenging outfit.
