You'd have also suggest that if any deal were to take place between Chelsea and Atletico Madrid for Radamel Falcao, it won't be happening over the January transfer window.
If Falcao is firing, which he has done so far this year, the UEFA Super Cup champions will be unlikely to sell him and lose out on the goals and attacking creativity that he brings to their attack.
They will be in championship races of their own, both domestically and across Europe, and will not want to sell their best player halfway through the season and potentially cost them Champions League qualification or title dreams in the process.
Don't be surprised either if Chelsea take this transfer window a little easier than their last one, where they shelled out over £80 million bringing the likes of Eden Hazard, Oscar, Marko Marin, Cesar Azpilicueta and Victor Moses to the club.
The Blues won't want to disrupt the balance of their squad—which we'll touch on shortly—and may well not pursue the big-name player that fans and media rumors might suggest they will.
Keep in mind that up until this season, Fernando Torres was considered somewhat of a transfer flop by the Blues—unable to produce the massive numbers of goals or attacking chances that he created at his former club.
That was the last striker that they paid £50 million for and they did so over the January transfer window. One thinks that they might be a little bit more cautious with their bank balance this January as a result of their past January transfer mistakes.
