If reports are true, neither Manchester United nor parent-club AS Monaco are interested in keeping Radamel Falcao next season, and latest claims from Spain suggest Valencia are now leading the chase for his signature.
Manchester United, as part of the season-long loan deal with Monaco, have the option to buy Falcao for £42.3m next month – but aren’t convinced that he’s worth such an amount given his disappointing campaign at Old Trafford.
According to Fichajes, Monaco have decreased their asking-price for the Colombian considerably due to his stock falling after his term with the Red Devils, which looks to have encouraged Valencia to table an offer in the summer transfer window.
The Spanish media outlet report that Los Che are looking to replace Alvaro Negredo – who could leave at the end of the season when his loan spell from Manchester City expires.
The La Liga outfit have an excellent relationship with Falcao’s agent Jorge Mendes, and he looks set to be brought in to finalise a £30m deal for his client to make the move to the Mestalla Stadium.
The 29-year-old spent two stunning seasons in La Liga with Atletico Madrid – scoring 52 goals in 67 league appearances. His familiarity with Spain’s top flight could see the striker seriously consider an offer from Valencia.
