My! How the Price Has Fallen!
Does anyone remember when we were talking about Chelsea paying silly money for Radamel Falcao?
If I remember right, there was talk in the air of a deal being done for the 28 year old striker for a reported fee of anything between £35 million and £50 million.
As it turned out Falcao went to AS Monaco and Chelsea were left to gather up the crumbs and sign the ageing Samuel Eto`o.
Well it seems that a year in French football has seen Falcao`s price come tumbling down with it being reported this morning that he has joined Real Madrid for a fee said to be in the region of £20 million.
With a daily debate taking place, on Vital Chelsea, about our apparent lack of depth in the striking department, does anyone care to kick-start that debate again now that you can throw into the mix the number of quality forwards Carlo Ancelotti has at his disposal at the Bernabeu?
