Chelsea Leads Race for Atletico Madrid’s Falcao, Daily Star Says

March 30 (Bloomberg) -- Chelsea has moved ahead of Manchester City and Real Madrid in the race to sign Atletico Madrid striker Radamel Falcao, the Daily Star said.

Chelsea has opened talks with Atletico and both sides are confident of reaching a deal to send the Colombian, who is rated at 40 million pounds ($61 million), to Stamford Bridge after the season, the Star said.

Chelsea tried to sign Falcao in the past two transfer periods and one option available is offering Fernando Torres back to Atletico as part of a deal, the Star said. The Blues could also allow goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois to extend his loan stay at Atleico, the newspaper said.
