Chelsea convinced Falcao deal all but done

Chelsea have rejected the chance to sign Napoli striker Edinson Cavani to focus on Atletico Madrid star Radamel Falcao. Talks with the Colombian's representatives and Atletico chiefs have been ongoing for months - and Chelsea think they are now close to signing him.

The Daily Mail says the London club have turned down a potential summer move for long-term target Edinson Cavani to focus on getting Falcao's signature secured.

Roman Abramovich has given the green light to a financial package understood to be worth £200,000 a week and will also meet Atletico's £46million asking price.
