Radamel Falcao: Colombian striker 'looking to quit' Monaco just a year after £50m deal
Falcao, 28, wants to leave Ligue 1 side after just one injury-hit season
Monday 23 June 2014
Radamel Falcao is seeking an exit from Ligue 1 Monaco, according to reports.
The Colombian striker, who is not at the World Cup because of a major knee injury, is looking to leave the Stade Louis II after playing just 19 games for the club.
Liverpool, Manchester City and Chelsea are all likely to be interested in the 28-year-old, according to a report in the Daily Mirror.
After his massive move to Monaco, where he earns €35,000-per-week, Falcao played in just 16 Ligue 1 matches for the club, suffering a season-ending knee injury in January.
He faced a fight to be fit in time for the World Cup after surgery and despite being named into Jose Pekerman's preliminary squad, he failed to make the final 23.
Falcao was courted by clubs across Europe last summer after four stunning seasons with Porto and Atletico Madrid.
He scored 142 goals in 178 matches in four seasons for the two clubs, winning one Portuguese league title three domestic cups and the Europa League in consecutive seasons.
