Radamel Falcao has become a full-fledged superstar over the past few years and is showing no signs of wavering.
The Colombian star made a big money move to free-spending Monaco in this past summer’s transfer window for an astonishing €60 million from La Liga club Athletico Madrid. Falcao has not missed a beat in Monaco, scoring seven goals in nine games, already proving once again that he is one of the best strikers in the world.
It seems not to matter what league he is playing in or who he is playing with, he finds a way to put the ball in the back of the net. Nonetheless reports suggest Falcao seems to be unsettled at Monaco, supposedly due to the fact Monaco’s front office has not kept the promises made to Falcao prior to him signing his mega deal with the club.
At 27 years old, Falcao is in the prime of his career, looking better than ever and his unrest has put some of the top clubs on notice. It is rumored that Falcao may push for a switch in the January transfer window. That is a very appealing proposition to top clubs in Europe since Falcao is not Champions League cup tied because Monaco were in the second division in France last season.
Chelsea and Real Madrid have been said to be big admirers of Falcao and would jump at the chance to sign the Colombian even at an astronomical price tag. It is no secret.
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho wants a world-class striker and with Fernando Torres and Samuel Eto’o struggling to score consistently, Falcao could be the perfect fit for the English Premier League giants.
Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti also covets an alternative striking option, as Gonzalo Higuain has been sold to Napoli and Karim Benzema and Alvaro Morata have struggled to hit the back of the net this season.
When the January transfer-window hits, Falcao’s name will be at the top of every clubs list that can afford him. It will be fascinating to see what the Colombian will be sold for and if Monaco are willing to part ways with their star at all.
