Chelsea wary of 'massive prices'

A source has told ESPN that Chelsea are unlikely to replicate the extravagant money spent on Fernando Torres amid ongoing talk of a swoop for Atletico Madrid forward Radamel Falcao.

• Chelsea lead Falcao chase
• City linked with Falcao and Isco

Chelsea spent £50 million on Torres to bring him to Stamford Bridge from Liverpool in January 2011, while this summer they were again active in the transfer market, landing the likes of Eden Hazard for £32 million.

The Blues have been strongly linked with an interest in Falcao, with a £48 million asking price mooted, but the Champions League holders are conscious of UEFA's Financial Fair play rules.

Regarding the Torres deal, a source told ESPN: "Chelsea will never pay such massive prices for a player again."

Manchester City have also been mentioned as suitors for Falcao, who has scored eight La Liga goals this season, but it appears the club have other targets ahead of the January transfer window.

The ESPN source added: "Paris St Germain don't want him (Falcao), and (City boss Roberto) Mancini wants (Stevan) Jovetic."
