Manchester City have made a £32m bid for Radamel Falcao, with his club AS Monaco said to be ready to break a deal for him to move on loan to Real Madrid, according to Calciomercato.it.
The Colombian international has been the subject of much interest from top clubs this summer, and yesterday tweeted that he was set to move to the Bernabeu before quickly deleting the post and denying the rumours.
It could now be that City will be the favourites to snap up the 28-year-old ahead of their competition, with trusted journalist Tancredi Palmeri claiming that Monaco are ready to break their agreement with Real to allow him to move to the Etihad Stadium on a permanent deal.
This would eclipse the rumoured £20m that Madrid were ready to pay to take Falcao on loan for the season, and the Ligue 1 giants are seemingly happy to allow him to move on a permanent basis just one year after they signed the player from Atletico Madrid.

If City do land Falcao it is widely expected that they will have to sell Alvaro Negredo to adhere to Financial Fair Play rules, and it could be that the Spaniard will then move to Real as an alternative to Falcao.
