The transfer rumour mill is in overdrive and the biggest name is being linked to Arsenal, Real Madrid and Manchester City.
Radamel Falcao, one of the most courted strikers in world football looks certain to move from AS Monaco, and the big question is where to?
Real Madrid has clearly been Falcao’s preferred destination and after banking £59.7 million for Angel Di Maria, the smart money would be on him joining Gareth Bale, Cristian Ronaldo and James Rodriguez at the Santiago Bernabeu. But do they still need to offload Karim Benzema first?
Manchester City are apparently sniffing around too, with Manchester City holding talks with Falcao’s representatives according to his agent.
And then we come to Arsenal.
We’ve been linked to Falcao for a few weeks now and the thinking is, that we’d sign him on a years loan for £20 million. This would allow Arsenal to have a top calibre striker at the club while Olivier Giroud recovers from a broken bone in his ankle, and the Columbian striker would still be free to join Real Madrid next summer.
The thinking is that Falcao only coming for a year wouldn’t “kill” the other players at Arsenal, as Arsene puts it, and Falcao would still have the move he’s always dreamed of.
And apparently, we’ve given up on our £50 million pursuit of Edinson Cavani, as we’ve left negotiations too late in the day for anything to happen.
So what do you think? Are Arsenal going to sign one of the best players in the world and have a world class striker at the club?
Or are we promoting within, using Yaya Sanogo as our main striker?
