Chelsea close in on Falcao

Chelsea are closing in on a £26.5million deal for Porto striker Radamel Falcao after he accepted a £5million a year contract in principle. The prolific Colombian forward, who scored 39 goals for Porto last season, is expected to follow manager Andre Villas-Boas to Stamford Bridge and officially sign on July 1. The 25-year-old is expected to rekindle a Chelsea attack that has struggled to have any impact since the £50m signing of Fernando Torres from Liverpool in January and his arrival will pose questions over the futures of Nicolas Anelka and Didier Drogba. Falcao, who scored 17 goals in the Europa League alone last season, said: 'I am leaving things up to my agent. I am very calm about the situation but I know there has been some movement. My ambition is to keep working hard and I am convinced I can play in a superior league like England. If Chelsea is interested in me then all that needs to happen is for negotiations to take place.'
