So you can pretty much forget about getting Bony below market value.

abramovich is close friends with vitesse's owner so they have some kind of understanding where chelsea sends their promising young players there. it's mutually beneficial

they are not the only club that can pay it, but they may be the only club willing to pay the fee AND exorbitant wages in a top tier league

Atletico are no slouches themselves, but why would he leave a team not quite considered an elite team, for another 'project'? They've only just won promotion back to Ligue 1, and it's not as simple as bringing in a couple of good players to suddenly turn them into a potential Champions League side.

I've got a feeling he's headed for Chelsea, along with Mourinho.

these new wealthy clubs with deep pockets have shown the ability to get top players in their primes - aguero and tevez to city, eto'o to anzhi, and so on. i do agree that no champions league football is a big factor why they might not get falcao
