Chelsea reveal Falcao's shirt number

The striker, who scored only four times during his
season-long loan at Manchester United last term,
will wear the number vacated by Fernando Torres
Chelsea have confirmed that Radamel Falcao will wear the
No.9 shirt for the new season.

The Colombia international completed his loan move to
Stamford Bridge earlier in July, but will join up with his new
team-mates during the club’s pre-season tour of the United
States later this month after being given an extended
holiday due to his participation at the Copa America.

Chelsea’s No.9 shirt was last worn by Fernando Torres
before the Spaniard’s departure to AC Milan last August.

The Premier League champions have also confirmed that
new signing Asmir Begovic will take Petr Cech’s No.1 shirt
following the 33-year-old’s move to Arsenal.

Thibaut Courtois will keep his No.13 jersey.

Jose Mourinho’s side will face New York Red Bulls, Paris
Saint-Germain and Barcelona during their pre-season tour of
the United States, while they begin the new Premier League
campaign against Swansea City at Stamford Bridge on
August 8.
