Chelsea paying Radamel Falcao over £3MILLION for having injury?
According to UK MIRROR the club is facing the possibility of paying Radamel Falcao after
the striker suffers another injury.
The club were exploring the possibility of getting rid in January but the 29-year-old's latest injury could see them forced to pay his wages for the remainder of the year.
Radamel Falcaois unlikely to leave Chelsea in January after he suffered a setback in his return from injury.
The Colombia striker, who is on a season-long loan at Stamford Bridge from Monaco, has been sidelined since October with a thigh problem.
And while Guus Hiddink was keen on giving Falcao a chance to prove himself next month, the club were open to letting him return to Monaco or find another team to complete the season with.
However, neither of those things now appear likely to happen following the 29-year-old's latest blow with suggestions being that they would need Monaco's OK to terminate the deal, with the principality club unlikely to do so with an injured player.
Chelsea will most likely to be forced to retain the player and pay his £140,000-a-week wages for the remainder of the campaign, an eye-watering £3.3m in total.
Blues boss Hiddink revealed Falcao sustained the injury during training.
“We had him (Falcao) in a game. I can't remember the day, but we had him in a game and he had this injury again that he had before. It's the inside of his thigh.
“He was out and our medical staff tried to build him up, and he had a setback which is not always a positive signal. We hope within 10 days he might be fit again (to train). Not to play, no.”
Falcao has endured a nightmare 18 months since beginning his Premier League adventure with a season-long loan at Manchester United last season.
He scored four times for Louis van Gaal's side in a disastrous campaign and has fared even worse at Chelsea, netting just once.
