Sky sources have confirmed Radamel Falcao was at the Chelsea training ground on Wednesday and Thursday, amid speculation he had returned to Monaco to discuss his future with his parent club.

It has been reported in France that the striker was seen arriving at the Monaco training ground on Tuesday, although neither club have confirmed this to be true.

Sky Sports News HQ understands if Falcao was there, this would most likely have been to allow their medical staff to assess his current thigh injury, after he suffered a setback in his rehabilitation over the Christmas period. It is not uncommon for parent clubs to evaluate their own players when they are injured on loan to other clubs.

It is unclear whether there is a break clause in the loan agreement between the clubs, while the player has also been linked with a move to MLS side Columbus Crew. Their season starts in March, which would in theory allow him time to fully recuperate from his current injury.
