Radamel Falcao met Manchester City and Real Madrid chiefs Txiki Begiristain and Florentino Perez last night, according to The Express

The Colombian striker, who is currently on the sidelines with a long term knee injury, has attracted great interest from some of the elite clubs in world football in recent months.

The Monaco hitman - who only joined the Ligue 1 moneybags last summer - could already be on his way out of France this summer. 

Speculation had suggested that Premier League giants Chelsea were ready to make a move for the £60 million-rated striker in the near future, however the Blues now look behind the likes of City and Madrid in the race for his signature. 

If reports are to be believed, it appears that transfer plans were discussed between Falcao and the interested parties. 

However, it remains to be seen as to whether the likes of Manchester City and Real Madrid now step up their interest in the forward in the near future. 

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho may now have to turn his attentions elsewhere as he looks to improve his forward line. 

The Chelsea manager looks set to sign a new forward in the next market, after becoming frustrated with the likes of Fernando Torres and Co. this term.
