Monaco could reportedly complete the audacious triple capture of Radamel Falcao, Jackson Martinez and James Rodriguez in this summer's transfer window, despite the respective interest of Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United in the trio.

The newly promoted Ligue 1 side are ready to make a significant impact in the transfer market over the summer months, and are already reported to have agreed a £50 million deal to sign Falcao from Atletico Madrid.

Falcao had appeared set to follow Jose Mourinho from Madrid to Chelsea, while Manchester City had also been credited with interest in the 27-year-old, but Monaco appear to have won the race to sign him.

According to talkSPORT, the striker could be followed to the Stade Louis II by two highly coveted compatriots Martinez and Rodriguez, with both players targets for the billionaire backed principality club.

Manchester United have been credited with interest in both Porto players, although the Red Devils may pursue different targets following the announcement Sir Alex Ferguson will be succeeded at Old Trafford by David Moyes at the end of the season.

The Red Devils have also been linked with Falcao, while Chelsea are reported to have also been monitoring the situation of Martinez, who has scored 33 goals during his maiden campaign in Portugal.
