Chelsea boss Mourinho wants Diego Costa ahead of Falcao

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has dropped his interest in Radamel Falcao to focus on Atletico Madrid striker Diego Costa.

Mourinho wants to buy a new striker in January and has been linked with AS Monaco centre-forward Falcao.

But AS says he prefers Brazilian Diego Costa due to the Atletico ace's outstanding work ethic.

Mourinho feels Diego Costa's all-action style is better suited to his system than Colombian Falcao's more laid-back approach.
