Radmel Falcao will attract interest from the Premier League's 'top four' after the Monaco striker wants to move after just one month in France, according to the Daily Star.

The financial situation in French football continues to threaten clubs as the Ligue 1 newly promoted side will be facing a fine of £85million if they do not move in line with other French clubs, where players earning figures like Falcao pay 75 per cent in tax.

The Columbian international signed for Monaco in July for £52million and reportedly earning a tax-free wage of £270,000 a week.

A French official said: "The tax advantage that Monaco has is considered unfair by other clubs, especially in a period of economic difficulties for all clubs except for Paris Saint-Germain.

"For example, former winners of the league – Lyon and Lille – must now sell their players in order to break even," added the French representative.

Reports suggest that the agent of Falcao, Jorge Mendes, has sounded possible moves for his client, which include the likes of Real Madrid, Chelsea, Arsenal and both Manchester clubs.

The 27-year-old had previously been chased by Europe’s elite, before making his decision to join the rich French side.

Monaco are trying to find a way around their current position and last night laughed off suggestions of their financial row, although their financial plight continues.

Monaco said in a statement on Twitter: ‘The club categorically deny rumours about the sale of Falcao. As a reminder, the Columbian attacker has signed with ASMFC for five years.’

Will Falcao be moving on this summer? If so where? Would he be a good addition to your side? Feel free to comment below.
