According to John Richardson of the Express, Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho wants Monaco striker Radamel Falcao so badly he's prepared to use Fernando Torres as bait.

Reads an excerpt from Richardson's report:

"Mourinho’s desire to land the Colombian would be bolstered by offering Torres, who could be attracted by the chance to earn big bucks in the tax haven."

The Falcao to Chelsea speculation was heightened by Mourinho's appearance at Thursday's international friendly between Belgium and Colombia, which saw Falcao score in a 2-0 win.
