FALCAO CLOSE TO SIGNING WITH MONACO - WITH A "CATCH"

Atletico de Madrid Colombian forward Radamel Falcao is on the verge of signing with French Club Monaco. Spanish media speculate it could be today. However, most are baffled at why the "Best NÂș 9 in Europe" wants to sign with a Club that will not be in Champions League or in European competition.

Here are the reported reasons:

  • 60M€ transfer to Atletico de Madrid ( plus the commissions to all parties )
  • 10M€ / year net for Falcao 
Here is the interesting bit. According to Spanish media, Falcao has introduced a clause in his contract with very specific instructions. Spanish Sports paper "Marca" says it a one year contract with Monaco, other say that if Real Madrid or Chelsea FC show interest around the 1st of Janaury 2014 ( Winter Market ) & offer to buy the player for the same conditions as Monaco ( 60M€ + 10M€ salary ) , the French Club would have to let him go.

The 27 year old forward accepts a possible "dry year" without European Football , but leaves wide open a short-tern move to either Real Madrid or Chelsea FC.

Stay tuned. Until things are not made official the above is pure rumour.
