Premier League club Chelsea has agreed terms with Monaco for the season-long loan of Radamel Falcao. The Colombian international will link up with Jose Mourinho’s squad for the 2015/16 campaign.

“I am very happy to be joining Chelsea and can’t wait to start training and help,” Falcao said.

Starting his career with Argentina giants River Plate in 2001, the 29-year old arrived in Europe eight years later at Porto, where he made his Champions League debut against Chelsea. Falcao lifted successive Europa League titles, first with Porto and the second after joining Atletico Madrid in the summer of 2011.

Falcao spent the 2014/15 season on loan at Manchester United. With Chelsea he will be reunited with former Atletico teammates Thibaut Courtois, Filipe Luis and Diego Costa, as well as international colleague Juan Cuadrado.
