Arsenal transfers: ‘Falcao will go to the highest bidder on deadline day’
Arsenal transfers: Football agent says Radamel Falcao will definitely be leaving Monaco on deadline day
Radamel Falcao will join the club offering the most money for his services on transfer deadline day, according to football agent Rachel Anderson.
The Monaco striker’s future has been the subject of intense speculation in recent days, with the Colombia international having been linked with Arsenal, Manchester City and Real Madrid.
Arsene Wenger is on the lookout for a new striker after Olivier Giroud was ruled out of action until the new year due to a broken tibia.
Falcao has been linked with a season-long loan move to Emirates Stadium, and agent Anderson says the 28-year-old will definitely be leaving the Ligue 1 club before Monday’s 23:00 deadline.
“The club with the most money will sign Radamel Falcao, as long as they play Champions League football,” Anderson told BBC Sport.
“We don’t know where he will go, we just know he will.”
Falcao appeared to indicated that he was set to join Real Madrid over the weekend when he apparently deleted a tweet declaring that he was set to join Los Blancos.
Manchester City would most likely have to offload a player before signing Falcao in order to comply with Uefa’s Financial Fair Play Rules.
