Fabulous Falcao the one that got away for Chelsea

The Colombian struck a brilliant hat-trick in Atletico's 4-1 win over the Blues to claim the Uefa Super Cup on Friday and spark an almighty scrap for his signature next summer.

The story is too old to be commented.

Well, Atletico payed €40m for him, any possible suitors would have to pay at least double that.

Rafa wanted to sign him for 3m a few years ago but the old owners refused. Porto bought him for 4m a week later.

Man that must be a real blow considering how good he got. I don't know much about liverpool's past, but I keep hearing how bad the old owners were.

They were pretty bad and if it weren't for them, LFC wouldn't be where it is now.

People don't give rafa enough credit for his eye for talent. David Silva and David Villa were a hair away from joining, but the owners could not back him up.

Rafa is a Liverpool Legend! He got Liverpool back to the top for several years and almost won the league. His managerial career was destroyed by the previous owners. Totally sad really.
