Radamel Falcao insists that he is “very happy” at Monaco amid reported interest from Chelsea.

The Colombian has been linked with a move to the west London side despite sealing a big-money switch to Monaco from Atletico Madrid in the summer.

I don’t feel at ease with the speculation

Chelsea trio Demba Ba, Samuel Eto’o and Fernando Torres have struggled in the early part of the season leading to reports Mourinho wants a striker in January.

But Falcao, who has scored nine goals in 13 Ligue 1 appearances this term, hopes to return from a thigh injury in the coming weeks.

“I am very happy at Monaco and my wife is happy to live here,” Falcao said.

“There is no problem with the coach, the doctors or the team.

“I just have a small problem with my thigh. I will play again soon when I feel better.

On manager Claudio Ranieri, he added: “I don’t feel at ease with the speculation. I first want to thank coach Claudio Ranieri for his patience.

“He let me take my time to come back, he doesn’t put me under any pressure.”

Falcao scored 52 goals in 68 La Liga appearances for Atletico Madrid before moving to cash-rich Monaco.
