London – Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is prepared to make Radamel Falcao the club’s top earner by offering the striker a staggering £10million-a-year deal.

The Atletico Madrid forward, 26, is the club’s top target and the Russian billionaire is determined that Falcao will become the next global superstar at Stamford Bridge. Daily Mail has learned he will be offered around £200,000 per week. The club’s current top earner, Fernando Torres, is understood to be on £175,000 per week.

Meanwhile, Chelsea starlet Connor Hunte, 16, is close to signing a long-term contract. Manchester City are keen on the England Under 17 midfielder, who has been compared to Germany’s Mesut Ozil, but Chelsea look to have secured Hunte’s future. – Daily Mail
