Chelsea duo Mario Pasalic and Charly Musonda could join French outfit Monaco on loan as part of the deal to bring Colombian striker Radamel Falcao to Stamford Bridge.
This has been reported by the Telegraph, who claim that the Ligue 1 outift want to take two of Chelsea's brightest prospects on temporary deals this summer, with Pasalic and Musonda possibly moving to France.
Pasalic, who is now 20-years-old, is a midfielder and has previously been on loan at Spanish club Elche CF, while Musonda is just 18, having previously starred at Belgian side Anderlecht.

It remains to be seen, however, as to whether the Chelsea hierarchy allow the duo to depart for Monaco on loan, but it appears that it will help the club finalise the deal to sign Falcao.
The report goes on to reveal that the club are close to securing the striker, who endured such a torrid campaign under the guidance of Louis van Gaal at Manchester United last season.
Chelsea in need
It appears, then, that the forward, who is currently with Colombia at the Copa Amercia in Chile, will return to English soil for the 2015/16 campaign, with the player set to complete a season-long loan move to Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea, of course, are certainly in need of new options in attack, with Didier Drogba set to depart the club for the second time. Diego Costa may well have been one of the standout forwards in the division last term, but his injury problems may well be a cause for concern for Blues boss Jose Mourinho, leaving Loic Remy as the club's only other first-team forward.
The potential signing of Falcao will no doubt prove a risk for the club, but it appears one that Mourinho is ready to take.
At the end of the day, before his lengthy injury, the ex-Manchester United man was one of the most feared strikers on the planet, so perhaps the Blues boss really thinks he can get him back to that sublime level.
There is a huge problem, though: Falcao looked way off the pace at Manchester United last season, and it's not going to be easy for him to rediscover his best form. In truth, he's probably in need of playing week in, week out, but is he really going to find that at Chelsea with the likes of Costa and Co. around?
It's a huge move for Chelsea, but it's an even bigger one for Falcao, who has to be determined to prove exactly what he can do.
