Chelsea boss Mourinho won't give up on Falcao deal

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho remains hopeful of signing AS Monaco striker Radamel Falcao in January. The Mirror says Chelsea have held secret talks about a £30million January move for Porto striker Jackson Martinez.

Mourinho is desperate to improve his striking options, and would like another Colombian - Monaco's Radamel Falcao.

Falcao was on Mourinho's wanted list when he returned to the Blues in the summer and he was confident of getting a deal done with Atletico Madrid, but Monaco's millions won the transfer tug-of-war.

The west Londoners still have not given up on signing him, and it would appear international teammate Martinez is a back-up option.
