L’Équipe report that Turkish giants Galatasaray sit in pole position to land 33-year-old Colombian forward Radamel Falcao from AS Monaco.
El Tigre is under contract with ASM until 2020 and has a two-year contract offer which would see him better his €8m a year salary at AS Monaco.
Manu Lonjon even claims that Gala’s offer is for a 3-year contract, but that Jorge Mendes wants a clause included in a deal that allows the potential deal to be terminated easily in the event that Colombian side Millonarios FC make a bid for him.
Valencia and Atletico Madrid are also interested in bringing Falcao back to Spain, but would only be willing to match his current Monaco salary for the first year, with his wages dropping progressively in the second year.
AS Monaco manager Leonardo Jardim may delay a possible departure for the player until the club signs a striker.
AC Milan would still like to sell André Silva to the Principality side but for a lower price after health issues were uncovered during the player’s medical last week.
