Monaco striker Radamel Falcao's father has dropped the clearest hint yet that his son could be on the move this summer - with Manchester United, Liverpool and Real Madrid all in the race for his signature.
The Colombian joined Monaco last year in a deal worth in excess of £50 million, and while his goal scoring record was passable his season was cut short through injury and he missed the World Cup. He made his return in pre-season and now he is said to be hankering for a move away from the Principality.
Real Madrid appear to be in the driving seat for his services however both Liverpool and Manchester United are keen on the former Porto man, who is reportedly valued at around £35 million by his club.
A host of clubs have been linked with the striker. Liverpool emerged as surprise suitors for Falcao last week, and were said to be looking at a loan deal with a view of making it permanent after 12 months. Manchester United have a long-standing interest in the Colombian, while Chelsea have previously been linked with him, as have Manchester City.
Whether he ends up at Real Madrid, Liverpool or Manchester United, one thing that appears certain is that he will be on the move - his father dropped a clear hint that a transfer could happen shortly.
"I can't rule out that my son might leave," said Radamel Falcao Sr. "But the only thing I can say is that, for now, he has a contract with Monaco."
Although Karim Benzema recently penned a new contract at the Bernabeu, Real Madrid are still favourites to sign Falcao.
Manchester United appear well stocked up front although Javier Hernandez could well leave Old Trafford. Liverpool are yet to get a direct replacement for Luis Suarez who has joined Barcelona, although they have lured seven new players to Anfield.
