In France, reports are that Atletico Madrid’s striker Falcao is set to sign for Monaco, who recently gained promotion to the French Ligue 1. Monaco have money to spend, and according to their goalkeeper Danijel Subasic a deal is all but done. The Croatian told Sportske Novosti “I’ll tell you what I heard: Falcao is already 90 per cent Monegasque! He will appear in Monte Carlo in a few days and officially become our player.”
Falcao has been attracting interest from Real Madrid and Chelsea, but looks certain to sign for Monaco. Money talks, I suppose.

Also in France, Arsenal right-back Bacary Sagna is a target for PSG, and stated “At Arsenal, in the dressing room they tease me every day telling me I will leave to play at PSG, but it is speculation. I don’t know what is going to happen. I could very well extend my contract here in London but equally I could leave at the end of the season. I only have one year left on my contract. We will see.”
