Chelsea boss Mourinho encouraged in bid for Monaco star Falcao

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has received encouragement in his pursuit of AS Monaco striker Radamel Falcao. Tuesday's defeat to Sunderland underlined Mourinho's summer assessment of his squad that they needed more ammunition to dominate at the top level.

The Daily Mail says Monaco have insisted Falcao is not for sale but the player, watched personally by Mourinho in November, is keen to move to a more competitive competition. He was bought for £50million and Monaco would want a profit.
