Radamel Falcao has placed his future in the hands of God - aka Florentino Perez - as the AS Monaco striker bids to follow compatriot James Rodriguez and complete a transfer to Real Madrid before the close of the summer window.

Serious interest

Falcao has been mentioned as a target for Real Madrid for some time, but the knee injury he sustained playing for Monaco last season put any proposed move to the Santiago Bernabeu on the back burner.

But with Falcao now having returned after seven months away, playing his first game since January in last weekend’s Emirates Cup, Real Madrid appear to have revived their interest in the player.

Liverpool too have been credited with interest in Falcao as Brendan Rodgers makes plans to bring another centre-forward to Anfield following the departure of Luis Suarez, but it is a move to Madrid that appears increasingly certain.

Done deal?

The Guardian reports that Liverpool have made an approach for the 28-year-old only to be informed that he is close to joining Real Madrid, and there have since been quotes attributed to Falcao that suggest an announcement is near.

Jan Aage Fjortoft, a former Premier League striker and not working as a pundit, tweeted comments from Falcao on Thursday evening, with the Colombian stating that his future is in the hands of Real Madrid president Florentino Perez.

And it would seem his future will soon be resolved. Falcao is rated at around €40 million, although the former Porto and Atletico Madrid star is expected to be signed on loan with a view to a permanent transfer next summer.

FFP swerve

This would be a way for Real Madrid to get around the FFP regulations following another significant summer in the transfer market, during which they have spent ludicrous sums but, as of yet, not sold anyone to balance the books.

James Rodriguez was another vanity acquisition for Perez, arriving as the third most expensive player in transfer history, while Toni Kroos and Keylor Navas have also joined Madrid after sterling World Cups.

It is almost ridiculous to contemplate Falcao now being added to this team, particularly after Karim Benzema signed a new five-year contract, and it will reportedly take a fee of around £10 million to sign the former on loan for the season.
