China closing in on Chelsea flop Falcao

Radamel Falcao could be the next big name to make his way to the Chinese Super League.

The Colombian striker, who is on loan at Chelsea from AS Monaco, continues to be heavily linked with a possible move to China which is beginning to throw it's mega wealth all around Europe.

The Daily Mirror reports that the CSL, which is basically a state-owned operation, will purchase the 30-year-old before assigning him to one of the clubs, much in the same vein as Major League Soccer has done in the past.

There has been an influx of top players from European clubs making their way to China in the past few months and it is believed that Falcao, who has struggled with form and fitness at Stamford Bridge, may be the next to arrive with Jiangsu Suning showing significant interest while a host of other clubs would also be keen.

It is understood Falcao is open to the move in a bid to kickstart his flailing career.
