Villas-Boas wants Falcao at Chelsea to replace Torres - not Drogba

Fernando Torres' position at Chelsea is under threat with the arrival of new manager Andre Villas-Boas. O Jogo says Villas-Boas is keen to bring with him to Chelsea his former Porto striker Radamel Falcao - who would arrive as not a threat to Didier Drogba, but Torres.

A source close to negotiations says any move for Falcao will depend on Chelsea finding a buyer for Torres.

The former Liverpool striker only moved to Chelsea in January for £50 million. The Blues would like to arrange a 'graceful exit' for the Spaniard, but are struggling to find buyers.

Villas-Boas has made the signing of Falcao a priority, but no negotiations will occur unless Chelsea can find a club to take Torres off their hands.
