Radamel Falcao won't be leaving Monaco anytime soon, according to team-mate Jeremy Toulalan.

The Colombian striker raised eyebrows when he opted to join newly-rich Monaco from Atletico Madrid in a summer deal believed to be worth around £51 million.

Although Falcao has settled well and has scored seven goals in nine appearances, reports continue to link him with a move to various clubs including Chelsea, Manchester City and Real Madrid.

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez did little to play down the speculation recently by claiming the striker wanted a move back to Spain.

However Toulalan, who also joined the Ligue 1 club in the summer, insists Falcao has no intention of cutting short his five-year contract.

"You can never say never in football, we don't know what can happen. But Falcao's playing rather well with Monaco,” the Frenchman said.

“Unlike certain strikers, you can see that he also works for the team and defensively. I don't get the impression that he wants to leave."

Monaco currently sit at the top of Ligue 1 after nine games, level on points with Paris Saint-Germain, both of whom are yet to lose a game this term.
