Radamel Falcao Garcia could use a change of scenery in order to find more playing time, and Columbus Crew SC might be a perfect fit.

According to, Falcao could leave English Premier League side Chelsea to join Crew SC ahead of the 2016 MLS campaign. The MLS Cup runner-ups have reportedly begun preliminary negotiations for the veteran Colombia forward, who has struggled for consistent minutes this season.

Falcao, 29, is currently on loan to the Blues from AS Monaco. He has made just one start and nine total league appearances for the struggling English outfit, playing just 214 minutes and scoring one goal.

Considered one of the best strikers in the world just a few years ago, he's played for the likes of River Plate, Porto, Atlético Madrid, Monaco and Manchester United. He tore his ACL while playing for Monaco in early 2014 and missed that year's World Cup in Brazil.
