Falcao could join Chelsea or City in January – Monday’s Rumour Round-up



Radamel Falcao’s father has hinted that the Atletico Madrid striker could join either Chelsea or Manchester City when the transfer window reopens in January. The Colombian international’s stock has soared since joining the Spanish giants last year and his devastating performance against the Blues in the Super Cup, in which he struck a first half hat-trick, will have certainly whetted owner Roman Abramovich’s appetite. His father, Radamel snr, claims it is ‘very likely’ that his son will move to the Premier League in 2013. ESPN

Laudrup searching for new left back – Swansea boss Michael Laudrup will enter the free agent market for a new left back after Neil Taylor was ruled out for the rest of the season. Wales international Taylor fractured his ankle early in Saturday’s 2-2 draw with Sunderland at the Liberty Stadium and was replaced by 19-year-old Ben Davies.

Rodgers not looking for quick Owen fix – Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has played down speculation linking Michael Owen with a stunning return to Anfield stating he won’t build up his hopes of pulling off a deal for the striker. Owen is currently a free agent after being released by Manchester United in the summer and has been heavily linked with a move to Stoke City. Rumours that the 40-goal England international could be set for a return to the red half of Merseyside intensified over the weekend after Andy Carroll left the club to join West Ham on loan but Rodgers has yet to make a move for Owen and seems reluctant to do so despite his shortages in attack. Sporting Life
