The new Blues manager who penned a three-year contract at Stamford Bridge yesterday has insisted he will not be off-loading any of the current players at Chelsea, but he hasn’t ruled out making offers for new players.
The prolific hitman has admitted he is keen to test himself at the highest level and may be ready to follow his 33-year-old boss in departing the Europa League winners.
"I am leaving things up to my agent," Falcao said.
"I am very calm about the situation but I know there has been some movement.
"My ambition is to keep working hard and I am convinced I can play in a superior league like England.
"If Chelsea is interested in me then all that needs to happen is for negotiations to take place."
Falcao is understood to have a £26million release clause in his contract and Porto president has admitted that if the release clause is meet, Jorge Pinto da Costa will consider offers.
Chelsea are also being linked with Joao Moutinho now that Villas-Boas completed his switch to West London, the playmaker also have a release clause in his contract and the Porto president said if their valuation is meet both players could leave Porto.
He said: "If there are termination clauses we have to prepare for the possibility that a player will leave at the value set out.
"But I am not going to negotiate that price with anyone.
"As with Villas-Boas, there was no conversation with Chelsea, just the money paid into our account to release him."
