Di Matteo: "Any trainer would want Falcao in their team"

Chelsea coach, Roberto Di Matteo, showed his admiration for Atlético Madrid's Colombian forward Radamel Falcao and also emphasised how every trainer would be more than happy to have him in their team.

"He is probably one of the best centre-forwards in European and international football. If you asked any trainer they would want him in their team," the Chelsea coach said.

According to some media sources, Chelsea could be set to offer the club from Madrid around 48 million pounds (almost 60 million euros) for Falcao.

Di Matteo described the 26-year-old Falcao's goal ratio as "impressive", both this season and the last three for Atlético Madrid and Porto.

Chelsea's Italian trainer could look to strengthen his squad in the January transfer window as his Nigerian star, Victor Moses, is due to play in the Africa Cup of Nations.

In Chelsea's last three Premier League games, they have drawn two and lost one, which currently puts them in third place with 24 points, three behind leaders Manchester United and one from Manchester City, in second.
