Chelsea Eyes $52 Million Falcao, Standard Says: Roundup

March 15 (Bloomberg) -- The following is a roundup of soccer stories from U.K. newspapers with clickable links to the Web.

Falcao Target

Chelsea’s top transfer target is Atletico Madrid striker Radamel Falcao, the Evening Standard reported.

Falcao, who has 20 goals this season, joined Atletico Madrid from Porto for 40 million euros ($52 million) last year.

Villas-Boas Job

Andre Villas-Boas is the frontrunner to replace Claudio Ranieri at Inter Milan, the Daily Mail reported.

Ranieri could lose his job after the end of the season, or earlier if Inter -- seventh in Italy’s Serie A -- continues to underperform, according to the Mail.

Rangers Exile

Charlton may beat Premier League teams Aston Villa and Everton to signing Glasgow Rangers winger Gregg Wylde, the Daily Mirror reported.

The League One leader made the highest cash offer for the Scotland Under-21 team player to Rangers, which is in financial administration, the Mirror said.

Megson Candidate

Gary Megson is a contender to become Wolves coach, the Daily Mirror reported.

Megson, fired by Sheffield Wednesday two weeks ago, is willing to be a “firefighter” until the end of the season as Wolves seeks to avoid relegation, the Mirror said.
