Mourinho sees Falcao as the next Chelsea striker


FalcaoChelsea manager Jose Mourinho said that he is already looking for a new striker with Colombian Radamel Falcao being his primary target for the summer.

The Blues struggle with goals this season with Fernando Torres, Demba Ba and Samuel Eto'o all failing to deliver enough goals at Stamford Bridge. In this situation Mourinho has no other choice than look for a new forward. English press recently suggested the Blues might turn to their former star Didier Drogba. However Mourinho would prefer an younger option and sees Falcao as perfect fit.

“I have a team but no striker,” he admitted  in an interview on the French television programme Canal Football Club. “A player like him can't play in front of 3,000 people. Monaco is a club to end career” he commented on Falcao's situation in France.

Mo also added a few words about his current players including John Terry, Frank Lampard and Ashley Cole – “If they get a contract in this club, which probably they will, they will do based on performance, based on the quality they are showing. It will not be because they are legends or because we owe them something or because they want to stay here at any cost. They are performing.”
