Reports have surfaced the last couple weeks that Chelsea Owner Roman Abramovich plans to buy Atletico Madrid Forward, Radamel Falcao, in the coming January transfer market. Chelsea supporters are torn on rather if they should support this purchase or be opposed. The answer is simple, and it is to oppose. Chelsea already have a better striker in their possession and have no need for Falcao.
Coming into this year all the marbles were given to Fernando Torres, and he has answered the call. He has scored 7 goals already including two against top clubs, Newcastle and Arsenal. The assumption that Falcao will score more than Torres is absolutely absurd. Torres fits this new Chelsea and Falcao clearly doesn't. Ever since Oscar has entered the starting lineup, Chelsea have looked the most formidable side in the Premier League, and that attack is led by Fernando Torres.
Radamel Falcao has a certain playing style that isn't common with center forwards. He loves to have the ball and wants it at all times. With the midfield combo of Eden Hazard, Juan Mata and Oscar, he simply won't fit. Mata, Hazard and Oscar all require more possession than anyone on the pitch, and they love to pass it between each other. Bring Falcao in and the chemistry in the midfield could be torn apart. Chelsea's midfield monster's require a one touch finisher and that is exactly what Torres is. He loves to hit shots first touch or take a simple touch to find a shot. Falcao will not fit at Chelsea and Roman Abramovich will make a huge mistake in buying him. This purchase could jeopardize the career of all of Chelsea's forwards and also the lovely football the whole squad has been playing this year. The Blues are a happy family at the moment and Falcao could tear it all apart.
