Radamel FalcaoChelsea have signed Radamel Falcao on a season-long loan deal from Monaco, with Blues youngster Mario Pasalic moving in the opposite direction as part of the agreement.

The Colombian striker will link up with Jose Mourinho’s side for a second shot at the Barclays Premier League after his disastrous season at Manchester United.

‘I am very happy to be joining Chelsea and can’t wait to start training and help with our aim of retaining the league title and being successful in Europe,’ Falcao said.

The 29-year-old arrived at Old Trafford last summer as one of the most feared strikers in Europe but a serious knee injury suffered while playing for Monaco seemed to take its toll as he notched just four goals.

United turned down the chance to sign Falcao on a permanent deal, or to extend his loan, allowing Mourinho to step in to boost his strikeforce following the departure of Didier Drogba.

Croatian youngster Pasalic, who spent last season with Elche in La Liga, moves on loan to Monaco as part of the deal.

Falcao is reunited with Diego Costa, Thibaut Courtois and Filipe Luis, who he played with at Atletico Madrid, as well as international team-mate Juan Cuadrado at Stamford Bridge.
