FALCAO CONSIDERS EARLY CHELSEA EXITRadamel Falcao could ask Chelsea to cancel his season-long loan in January, according to the Sportmasta, Daily Mirror and The Sun, after he failed to even make the squad for the Blues’ 2-0 win over Aston Villa on Saturday.
Falcao was also one of three players Jose Mourinho did not take to Portugal for the club’s last Champions League game at Porto, and it is said to have left the striker fearing for his place in the Colombia team.
The 29-year-old has been linked in the Spanish press with a move to Barcelona, who are known to be on the lookout for a new forward.
REAL REFUSE TO GIVE UP ON HAZARDIt is a rumour which is regurgitated on a regular basis, but Spanish website Fichajes claims Real Madrid are determined to sign Eden Hazard from Chelsea next summer before his value rockets even further.
Mourinho said in April it would cost Real “£100 million for each leg” to sign Hazard, but a slow start to the season has seen the Belgian lose his undroppable status – he was afforded only seven minutes as a substitute against Villa at the weekend.
Hazard, 24, still has time on his side to establish himself as one of the world’s best players, however, and Real are apparently keen to snatch him as cheaply as possible before that happens.
