Chelsea news: Father confirms Blues striker Radamel Falcao is not looking for China move

Radamel Falcao is on a season-long loan from AS Monaco after a disappointing loan spell at Manchester United.

Chelsea striker Radamel Falcao is not considering a move to China, the player's father has revealed.

The Colombian international was signed by the west London club on a season-long loan from AS Monaco. Prior to his switch to the English capital, he had a disappointing loan spell at Manchester United, where he struggled to impress during his time at Old Trafford.

Things have not been different for Falcao since joining the Premier League winners. Falcao has not featured for Chelsea since last October as he is recovering from his injury and this has seen him left out of their Champions League squad, with January signing Alexandre Pato selected ahead of him.

According to the Mirror, the former Atletico Madrid and FC Porto star was set for a big money move to China. However, his father has played down those suggestions and admitted that his son will be back from his injury in the next 10 days.

"I was with him about a month ago, he was very well, he knows how to handle these things. He was positive, every day preparing to come back. These injuries are normal in football," Radamel Garcia told RCN Radio, as quoted by ESPN.

"He likes challenges. He will keep playing in Chelsea until the end of the season. Many things can happen, he can start scoring goals and people can realise his importance.

"He is not thinking about moving to China at all. He is just thinking about playing for Chelsea."

"He is working every day to come back. Let me tell you -- Falcao will be back on the pitch in a few days, if God wills."

"There was no setback with his knee injury, but unfortunately he suffered another normal injury that any player can suffer. I had same injury and it took three months for me to come back. They are difficult to treat. But his knee is fine," he added.
