Liverpool face competition from European heavyweights for ex-Man United striker
The 29-year-old spent the 2014-15 campaign on loan at Old Trafford and, having returned to AS Monaco, his future looks destined to again lie away from the Stade Louis II with speculation suggesting that he wants to remain in the Premier League.
According to French tabloid le 10 sport, Chelsea are leading the chase for his signature, as Falcao is reportedly excited at the prospect of being coached by Jose Mourinho, but is apprehensive at potentially being back-up to Diego Costa. Liverpool also remain in the race, and the forward could be lured to Merseyside by the idea that he is almost guaranteed regular first-team action under Brendan Rodgers given the Reds’ woes in attack.
The newspaper goes on to state its belief that the former Atletico Madrid star has already decided which club he will playing for next season, and it’s expected that he has opted to remain in England’s top flight to prove himself following a miserable four-goal campaign with Manchester United.
The Colombian is currently on international duty, as his country prepares for their opening Copa America clash versus Venezuela on Sunday afternoon.
