Can Radamel Falcao be the player he once was at Jose Mourinho's Chelsea?

ESPN FC's Tommy Smyth wonders if Louis van Gaal or Jose Mourinho will appear smarter at the end of the season in regards to the Radamel Falcao transfer saga.
ESPN FC's Craig Burley addresses Radamel Falcao's reported loan move to Chelsea, where he now joins former teammate in Diego Costa.

There was a lurch into the third person as Radamel Falcao defended his Manchester United performances.

"Falcao was always there," he said, speaking in Chile ahead of Colombia's Copa America campaign. "It depends what criteria you are using. People said I was not on the field and not scoring goals but I was always there."

It was a problematic choice of words, considering goals are the criteria by which forwards are measured and especially when signs of them becoming a more "complete" player, as appears...

Radamel Falcao signs, but Chelsea fans still seeking transfer-window spark

ESPN FC's Tommy Smyth wonders if Louis van Gaal or Jose Mourinho will appear smarter at the end of the season in regards to the Radamel Falcao transfer saga.

It has been well over a month since John Terry gleefully held the Premier League trophy aloft. The celebrations around Stamford Bridge went long into the night, and the recent heat wave that London has experienced has allowed supporters and players alike to bask further in the glory.

Although such an achievement should always be savoured, it is curious to note that there has been little activity from Chelsea in the transfer market. Radamel Falcao joined the club on Friday, but only in a loan capacity,...

Arda Turan to Chelsea makes sense as Jose Mourinho prepares to defend title

ESPN FC's Janusz Michallik and Alexis Nunes discuss what moves Chelsea need to make in this summer's transfer market.

Barely a day passes without Chelsea being linked with a move for an Atletico Madrid player.

Given the transfer history linking them with Atleti -- Thibaut Courtois, Filipe Luis and Diego Costa all recent examples of players featuring for both teams -- it's evident that the channels of communication between the powerbrokers at both clubs are always open.

Speculation recently concerned Atleti's France international forward Antoine...

Terry, Walcott, Carrick and Van Persie available in 2016 as deals expire

The transfer window is open and the ESPN FC crew look at the possible ins and outs in the Premier League.

The summer transfer market is already being shaped by players whose previous clubs proved unable or unwilling to keep them when their contracts were expiring.

Steven Gerrard, Frank Lampard, Didier Drogba, James Milner, Danny Ings and Glen Johnson have all moved on this summer and the window next year will be no different.

As a host of players enter the final year of their deals, coveted footballers can find themselves in an even more enviable position when they are able to enter the market without...

Kenedy is rumoured to be Chelsea-bound and is comparable to Hulk

Chelsea target Kenedy has scored five goals in 40 appearances forĀ Fluminense.

Fluminense forward Kenedy has been the subject of interest from a number of European sides but is soon expected to complete a move to Chelsea. His club confirmed last week that they had reached a deal to see him depart, with local media reporting that his destination would be Stamford Bridge in a £6.3 million move.

Kenedy, 19, was born in the Brazilian city of Santa Rita do Sapucai in Minas Gerais state. He began his youth career, aged 11, at Friburguense in Rio de Janeiro state, and then passed...

After Petr Cech's Chelsea exit, who will replace him as the No. 2 goalkeeper?

New Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech talks to the media after signing with the club.

And so another legend departs. First it was Didier Drogba in 2012, then it was Ashley Cole in 2014, followed by Frank Lampard that same year, and Drogba again after this past season. Now it is officially time to wave goodbye to the one man human shield that is Petr Cech.

For the supporters, the mixed feelings are obvious. The gratitude and best wishes towards the club's greatest ever goalkepper are genuinely heartfelt. The knowledge that Chelsea are allowing one of the finest stoppers in world football...
