Chelsea fans travel to Colombia game in bid to convince Falcao to sign for Blues

A group of fanatical Chelsea and Falcao fans have been trying to convince the striking sensation to move to Stamford Bridge.

Radamel Falcao. Now there is a name you are surely going to get fed up with over the next few months. The Colombian is a goal-machine and this propensity to find the back of the net is making him the hottest property in the transfer market.

Now his future has been cast into further doubt with the news that Diego Simeone; the hard-nosed manager of his current club Atletico Madrid has admitted he could be on his way out this summer; with Chelsea the favourites to sign him.

"It is complicated, but it would be fabulous if he stayed, I am not his agent. I am not Falcao. Falcao has given me a lot and is a player with commitment, and I respect him a lot for that. The fans do not have to judge him after all he has given. If he does end up leaving, another competitive player will surely arrive."

There is also reported interest from Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain but you can guarantee that none of their fans have taken as drastic a measure as going to see Falcao and trying to convince him to make the move to Stamford Bridge.

Yet that is exactly what a group of Chelsea fans have done.

Colombia were in action against Bolivia in a World Cup Qualifier on Friday in Baranquilla in the north of the country.

But hold on we are not for one minute suggesting that an over-amorous ‘true blue’ from London made the epic trip to South America; but rather a group of Colombian Chelsea fanatics who made the trip up north.

They were interviewed by a top station in Colombia where they sang ‘Blue is the Colour’ in a Spanish twang and made their love for the idea of El Tigre in a Chelsea shirt very clear. You can view the video here but a word of warning if you don’t speak pretty fluent Spanish you will only catch the gist of what is being said.

Meanwhile, in the game, Colombia won 5-0 and Falcao grabbed a goal to earn them victory and give the Chelsea Colombians something to cheer about.

And before you think it was a wasted trip they even managed to snap the man himself signing one of their placards; which had a photo-shopped picture of him in a Chelsea shirt plastered onto it...
