Now That`s What You Call A Salary!

Now That`s What You Call A Salary!

Now whether we`ll end up signing Falcao or not I have no idea.

But the tabloid press seem adamant that he is our main target this January and that the £46 million buy-out clause in his contract isn`t foreseen as a problem.

But, this morning, they offer another inference suggesting that Roman Abramovich has agreed to pay the striker a massive £10 million a year, or a cool £200,000 a week.

Will that bring the Atletico Madrid player to SW6?

Who Knows!

Merlin..Falcao's buyout clause is £48 million ..shhh I wont tell anyone you got your facts wrong :)
14/12/2012 12:27:00
whats £2million when your paying that kinda money? waste of even more money when we could get remy,waclott and capoue for the same it would cost for bloody falcao. no sence these rich men
14/12/2012 12:38:00
Rumours until he joins us.and am one of those who are 50-50 about him joining cfc.if he comes let it be one of the best signing.
14/12/2012 12:39:00
roman must be fool if he spends that much amount on him....another disaster in the making....chelsea will never their lesson....they like to get shot on their foot...
14/12/2012 12:45:00
@shlok...your are a multibillionaire , would you pay £50million for Neymar?..I would have bought a few years back for £40 million no problem....I would still pay£50 million for him
14/12/2012 13:09:00
I hope this deal doesn't happen.....Falcao for 48-million and another 10-million annually? I 'd rather pay 50-million for a young Neymar.

getting Falcao this January should be a priority and not an option. we need to upgrade our striking department ASAP!!!
14/12/2012 13:20:00
Am indifferent about much as falcao dont join our rivals then i wont lose ma sleep,but if he joins us i would be glad after all am not payin the bills(roman does)
14/12/2012 13:34:00
@BlueMel,I severely doubt that Falcao's buyout clause is written in pounds,so with a different euro to pound rate the sum might get even lower than 46 but it could well turn out to be over the 50 milion which we paide for Nando.As of today we have to pay Atletico 48.659 million pounds.

It's getting greedy or current striker playing for his future and then we are chasing a replacement you know who I would have El Tigre.

@blue mel.....50 million for one striker and that much amount of wages.....what about our other players for e.g mata...who is the heart of chelsea getting less amount than wont help chelsea club in future....we are having one useless striker earning free wages for nothing.....we dont want other that type of situation at chelsea again....i would buy damio schrulle or any other striker who would cost less than falco and would have decent wages.....
14/12/2012 14:11:00
any decent striker will score with the midfield we have now....we dont a 50 million striker now to score goals...because we have now the ammunation to feed our strikers....
14/12/2012 14:13:00
I agree with shlok27. We could get Bent and he would score over 30 goals in a season with this midfield
14/12/2012 14:41:00
Its not my money, I have already made my opinion about this known, if roman haven't learned anyhting after 3 attempts then he'll never learn, I just hope he justifies the price tag! I have a famous feeling about falcao coming to chelsea, but finger crossed
14/12/2012 15:40:00
Lets wait and see what happens by February 1.
14/12/2012 15:56:00
fek off we could buy lewandowski,walcott,ba,schurrle for that much money
14/12/2012 16:48:00
Our owner can afford to throw the money. If it will not affect CFC with the coming FFP regulations we should get him.
14/12/2012 17:52:00
Get him!! He can only make us the dreaded side once again and then we won't be facing mediocre teams with uncertainty of victory. If the money is there get him ,get FALCAO!! We need a tiger upfront ,our lion in Drogba has gone. Replace him with a Tiger ASAP!! But only if, and a big if,the money is there. Get Him!!
14/12/2012 18:02:00
Frankly as i have said time and again FFP is a paper tiger..the day Fifa dares sanction any of the big boys like ManU, Real and Barca who all have major debt issues then people can start fearing the bogey man. There are more loopholes in Fifa and UEFAs FFp than there are holes in a rafia basket. The way city got away with the money laundering deal they used for their naming deal of the Etihad (which was essentially the good Shiekhs money delivered through the back door) is a classic example of how unserious UEFA are..the only teams who need fear FFP are the minnows. That said i am against spending like a drunken sailor because a football club that lives by that model is living very dangerously especially when all the under the table revenue is coming from one man. As long as it appears that we are going to be losing heavy earners like Malouda, Benayoun, Ashley Cole and Lamps (both likely in the summer) we truly can afford a big salary superstar like Falcao). In the final analysis i wont lose any sleep one way or the other..i am not paying these bills..Roman can and invariably does whatsoever he wants to do anyway regardless of what we all think and say. I will just adopt a wait and see approach.
