Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich wants to bring Radamel Falcao to Stamford Bridge.

The Daily Mail says Abramovich has told Chelsea to press ahead with a £46million swoop for Falcao in January.

The Chelsea owner has identified the Colombia striker as the next world superstar he wants at Stamford Bridge and instructed Chelsea’s hierarchy to put together a bid for the next transfer window.

The prolific Atletico Madrid striker interested Chelsea during the Andre Villas-Boas regime and he has been extensively scouted by the club despite the Portuguese manager’s sacking.

Chelsea officials are understood to be confident a deal can be reached with Madrid, with the player open to moving to London and the Spanish club willing to sell. The only obstacle will be the price.

Falcao’s release clause is £46m and Atletico are determined not to lose their prized asset for anything less.
