Real Madrid intend to use the money generated by the sale of Angel di Maria to launch a raid for Liverpool and Chelsea target Radamel Falcao, according to Le10Sport.

Di Maria completed his British record £59.7 million switch to Old Trafford earlier this evening, penning a five-year contract wort a reported £250,000-per-week.


The Argentinian had handed in a transfer request at the Bernabeu amidst fears he would struggle for first team action following the arrival of both James Rodriguez and Toni Kroos. Now he has got his wish and will link up with his new Manchester United team-mates shortly.

Real Madrid are already plotting how to spend the cash, and Le10Sport say that Monaco striker is back on their radar. The Colombian is said to be seeking an exit from the Ligue 1 outfit having failed to settle properly following his £50 million switch last year.

Huge deal

The French source say that Real Madrid are currently negotiating a €60 million deal for Falcao - and that spells trouble for both Liverpool and Chelsea.

Both clubs have been regularly linked with the former Porto striker in recent weeks, although it would appear that Chelsea have a more pressing need for a new forward. Liverpool may have completed their summer spending spree following the arrival of Mario Balotelli at Anfield - their 9th new signing of the summer window.


There remain huge doubts over Fernando Torres' future at Chelsea despite Jose Mourinho's insistence otherwise. The Spaniard is yet to play a single minute for the Blues and wasn't even in their squad for the league win over Leicester at the weekend.

He is believed to be on his way to AC Milan, which could then pave the way for Chelsea to make a move for Falcao, although they will have to act quick if they want to beat Real Madrid to the punch. 


Manchester United meanwhile may have just completed their biggest transfer ever, but they still have huge problems to address on the pitch. The Red Devils stumbles to a humiliating 4-0 defeat against MK Dons in the Capital One Cup this evening - meaning they have yet to record a competitive win under new boss Louis van Gaal.
