Man City are reportedly readying a possible move for AS Monaco forward Radamel Falcao according to Italian source Gazzetta dello Sport.

This source suggests that the big spending Ligue 1 side may be forced to consider the possibility of loaning out the Colombian in order to adhere to UEFA’s FFP (Financial Fair Play) guidelines, a move that in turn could lead to Stevan Jovetic becoming a viable Juventus target.

One would have to wonder why Manuel Pellegrini would feel the need to bring in another goal-scoring option given that his side racked up 102 Premier League goals last term and still possess a strong striking quartet comprising Sergio Aguero, Edin Dzeko, Alvaro Negredo and the aforementioned Jovetic.

Falcao netted 11 goals in 19 appearances for AS Monaco before a knee injury suffered in January ended his season and put paid to his involvement at the World Cup finals.

A move to the Premier League may well interest the former FC Porto man and perhaps a loan move would lead to a permanent switch with Man City one of the few clubs in the world that can compete with AS Monaco in relation to wage demands.
