I guess there are many Arsenal fans that are of the opinion that it would be good for the Gunners if Chelsea sign Radamel Falcao, who has had an unbelievably bad season at Manchester United and if he keeps misfiring he will hardly be an asset to our rivals.
But there is another thread of opinion that is worried that Jose Mourinho will get the Colombian striker back to his best, as to be honest, look what Mourinho did with Diego Costa, who was also injured all through this season. It is a little known fact that the aged Didier Drogba actually played more games than Costa this season….
But one Arsenal player that REALLY wants Chelsea to sign Falcao is his Colombian team-mate David Ospina, who thinks he is a brilliant leader for his country.
“He is a great leader on and off the field,” Ospina told FourFourTwo. “It’s the kind of person that he is, he has always been an example, and now in the national team, he demonstrates to us that despite what happened at Manchester United he’s always been positive, always trained to his maximum.
“So we are very calm, because we know we have the best striker, we know his importance for the squad.
“And if that chance arrives, of going to Chelsea, to share a city with him would be very positive for both of us.”
It would be amazing (especially to Man United fans!) if Falcao could regain his old form at the Copa America, but it could also be very worrying for Arsene Wenger. If Chelsea have a fully fit Falcao AND a fully fit Diego Costa for the whole of next season, then Mourinho’s team will be very very hard to beat…
Please David, persuade your captain to go somewhere else please….
