River Plate would love to have Chelsea flop Radamel Falcao back at the club, according to the Argentine side’s president.
Falcao, who has endured two miserable seasons in the Premier League with Manchester United and Chelsea, spent four years at River Plate between 2005 and 2009 before switching to Portuguese giants Porto.
River Plate president Rodolfo D’Onofrio wants to re-sign Falcao but says everything depends on the will of the Colombian.
“Six months ago I contacted Falcao via some friends that we have in common, to see if he was eager to return to River. At the time, he told me that he wanted to continue in Europe, something which is understandable, as he is at a big club (Chelsea) and earning astronomical figures,” he is quoted as saying in Marca.
“He is the one who must decide if he intends to return to River, as [Andres] D’Alessandro and [Fernando] Cavenaghi did at the time. Everything depends on his decision. If Falcao has [made] the decision to return to River, the doors are open [for him]. It would be really nice to have him at the club again.”
