Falcao officially joined Chelsea on Friday on a season-long loan from Monaco.

Falcao spent last season on loan at Manchester United and managed only four goals while playing minimally. He was widely believed to be joining Chelsea this season in the hope that he can resurrect his career and potentially land a large transfer fee for Monaco, who has no interest in paying his exorbitant salary. He's unlikely to start at Chelsea ahead of Diego Costa in Premier League matches, though manager Jose Mourinho could start the two of them together, as they did briefly at Atletico Madrid.

Falcao is looking more likely to join Chelsea on loan this summer after another round of talks on Sunday, reports the Daily Mail.

Falcao struggled with Manchester United this season, as he started in only 17 of his 29 appearances and contributed just four goals and four asissts.

The Colombian struggled with fitness, regular playing time and ineffectiveness at United, who paid Monaco nearly $25 million for his season-long loan. Falcao will head back to Monaco following the season but reports are already surfacing of a potential loan deal to Chelsea next season, with Liverpool also said to be interested.

Manchester United announced Sunday that Falcao has returned to Monaco, as the club decided not to purchase him following his season-long loan.

Falcao was a colossal disappointment with United, though he rarely looked fully fit after tearing his ACL last January. There will be no shortage of suitors for him this summer, though he may have to take a pay cut to make a move happen.

Falcao is not in the 18-man squad for Sunday's season finale against Hull City.

Reports surfaced Sunday that Falcao has been told he will not be brought back to United next season, so it's not overly surprising that he was not included in Sunday's team. Wayne Rooney will start up front, with Robin van Persie available off the bench.

Manchester United chief executive Ed Woodward held discussions with Monaco on Sunday about Falcao and the impending decision about a permanent move for the player, reports the Daily Mail.

Falcao has largely been unimpressive on loan at United, suffering some time out of action with injuries. Woodward reportedly told Monaco that United would wait to make a decision whether or not to make the player's loan permanent until the end of the season. Falcao has scored four times for United since joining the club.

Falcao has been handed an important start in United's match against Chelsea on Saturday.

The Colombian has failed to impress this season at United and a good performance against top-of-the-table Chelsea would help his prospects for next season.

Falcao was brought on as a late substitute in United's 3-1 victory over Aston Villa on Saturday.

Falcao was brought on as substituted for Marouane Fellaini in the 77th minute. He recorded one shot during his short time on the pitch, unfortunately, it was not on target. Falcao is yet to make a significant impact at United and is having a difficult time cracking the starting XI. Up next, the Manchester derby.
