Chelsea are determined to test AS Monaco's resolve over Radamel Falcao in January. The Daily Star Sunday says their interest in Falcao is still as strong as ever, according to French sources.

Rumours still persist that the Colombian, 27, is unhappy and Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is poised with a £60million bid.

But Monaco vice-president Vadim Vasilyev insisted the player is going nowhere, saying: "He is very happy here, he feels very good in Monaco. He loves this club."
