Porto ace Falcao strikes personal terms with Chelsea

Porto star Radamel Falcao has agreed personal terms with Chelsea.

The Daily Mail says Chelsea are closing in on a £26.5million deal for Falcao after he accepted a £5million a year contract in principle.

The prolific Colombian forward, who scored 39 goals for Porto last season, is expected to follow manager Andre Villas-Boas to Stamford Bridge and officially sign on July 1.

Falcao, who scored 17 goals in the Europa League alone last season, said: "I am leaving things up to my agent. I am very calm about the situation but I know there has been some movement.

"My ambition is to keep working hard and I am convinced I can play in a superior league like England. If Chelsea is interested in me then all that needs to happen is for negotiations to take place."
