Liverpool, Manchester City and Real Madrid have all been linked with moves for Radamel Falcao this summer and the Colombia international has been showing off why in training.

AS Monaco made a terrible start to their Ligue 1 season on Sunday, losing 2-1 at home to Lorient at home but there was a positive in that Falcao scored in his competitive return from injury, slotting home a penalty to level in the second half.

He started that game on the bench but looks unlikely to do the same in their second fixture next Sunday away at Bourdeaux, as the latest video to emerge from Monaco training shows him getting back to his best by doing what he does best – scoring spectacular goals.

Sweet strike

The principality had their player cam on Falcao in the session and picked up a great view of him sneaking to the back post and burying a cross with a textbook scissors kick volley – watch it below…

If all three of Manchester City, Liverpool and Real Madrid are still chasing him then seeing him back in the groove will be a plus, especially as there would be legitimate doubts over his long-term fitness.

Injury heartbreak

Falcao suffered damage to the anterior cruciate ligament in his knee while playing in the French Cup in January and only made his return for the club in the pre-season Emirates Cup against Arsenal, where he scored the winner against the Gunners.

Such knee injuries are notorious for seriously affecting the sufferer’s career, with many players looking half the player upon return and having lost a yard or two of pace. Falcao is fortunate in that searing pace was never his strongest attribute and his movement in the opposition penalty area should not be hindered.
