Chelsea To Make Radamel Falcao The Club's Top Earner This January

Having been linked with Radamel Falcao since the start of the season – Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is willing too offer the Colombian a staggering 10million pound a year contract – making him the top earner at Chelsea Football Club.

The pay package being given to Falcao will be worth in the region of £200,000 a week in comparison to current top earner Fernando Torres, who is currently on £175,000 a week. The staggering salary offer underlines how serious Chelsea's interest is in Falcao – who has shot up to prominence from his time at FC Porto and Atletico Madrid.

The striker cost Atleti £38million pound when he was set to replace Sergio Aguero, and the Spanish outfit could look to make £10million pound profit on the player – with his buy out clause rumoured to be around £50million.

Falcao is being chased by top teams all around the world - most notably Chelsea, Real Madrid and Manchester City.

Chelsea have been in the run the longest, and look like they're finally getting there man.
