A round up of transfer stories this morning about Chelsea.

The Mirror claims Radamel Falcao could quit Monaco this summer, with Chelsea one of his potential destinations.

The Blues have been linked with the Colombian striker in the past and could do a deal if they fail to sign Diego Costa from Atletico Madrid.

Liverpool and Manchester City are the other interested Premier League parties according to the paper.

Belgium coach Marc Wilmots has suggested Chelsea will sell Petr Cech ahead of next season.

Thibaut Courtois is set to return to Stamford Bridge and become Jose Mourinho’s number one at the club.

“Yes, he will be returning to Chelsea this summer. Will they sell Cech? Yes, probably,” said Wilmots.

The Daily Star has hinted Chelsea could now go after Eliaquim Mangala of FC Porto, with Barcelona pulling out of the race to sign him.

The Nou Camp side were thought to be favourites for a £36 million deal for the defender.

However, that price seems to have prompted Luis Enrique’s side to withdraw from the race to get him.
