Colombian ace et for exit as Leonardo Jardim leaves him out of squad.
The future of Monaco striker Radamel Falcao is set to become a whole lot clearer after coach Leonardo Jardim left him out of the squad to take on Ligue 1 rivals Lille on Saturday evening, the Daily Mirror reports.
Both Manchester City and Arsenal have both been linked with making moves for the Colombian international before Monday’s transfer deadline after Real Madrid ruled themselves out of the running.
Monaco are reportedly willing to let him go on loan, should a fee be involved but the interested parties are said to favour other options.
City threw their hat into the ring to land his signature on Saturday, but they may have to clear the decks a little before making their move for him with the rules to Financial Fair Play hanging over their heads.
That could force them to move Alvaro Negredo out to La Liga giants Valencia, though they are yet to firm up their interest in the player.
Negredo began last season in good form but saw his input trail off towards the end of the campaign before a broken foot ruined his summer.
