Chelsea will reportedly not pay a similarly large sum to the one they dished out for Fernando Torres if they are to sign Radamel Falcao.

Chelsea will be reportedly 'cautious' if they make an approach for highly-rated Atletico Madrid forward Radamel Falcao.

The Colombian, 26, is believed to have a €60m (£48m) release clause in his contract at the Vicente Calderon but the Stamford Bridge club, who are said to be leading the race for his signature, apparently won't pay a similar sum to the £50m they spent on Fernando Torres.

A source reportedly told ESPN: "Chelsea will never pay such massive prices for a player again."

Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho, a former boss at Stamford Bridge, recently admitted that Los Blancos would not be making a bid for the striker.
