Chelsea are set to wreck Liverpool hopes of keeping hold of Luis Suarez this summer. The Mail on Sunday says Chelsea want to buy one of the world's most prolific strikers, Radamel Falcao, from Atletico Madrid. The Spanish club lie second in La Liga, just ahead of Jose Mourinho's Real Madrid.
Atletico are virtually certain to qualify for next season's Champions League. The club's directors are planning to cash in on Colombia international Falcao at peak value and replace him with Liverpool's Suarez.
"We won't be making firm approaches until May but our objectives are absolutely clear," says an Atletico source.
"We'll be back at the top level in Europe and we're not going to be short of quality when we get there."
