Incoming Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho wants to land Atletico Madrid striker Radamel Falcao.

And former Stamford Bridge star Scott Minto believes Mourinho's influence could persuade the Atletico Madrid striker to move to west London.

Minto told the Daily Star Sunday: "If he's going to leave Spanish football then I'd love to see him in the Premier League with Chelsea.

"I can see that being a real possibility. Jose Mourinho knows everything he needs to know about him.

"We know he's got the buy-out clause of £48million but whether anyone gets anywhere near that I don't know.

"Atletico Madrid have said he is going and he is the best number nine in world football."
