Chelsea target Falcao '90 per cent coming to Monaco', claims Subasic

The French club's goalkeeper has claimed that the Colombia international is certain to move to the Stade Louis II unless Real Madrid make a late bid for the striker
Atletico Madrid forward Radamel Falcao is "90 per cent coming to Monaco" and only Real Madrid can prevent the deal from going through, according to les Rouges et Blanc goalkeeper Danijel Subasic.

The newly crowned Ligue 2 champions are willing to meet the Colombia international's €60 million [£50.7m] buyout clause, as well as offer the in-demand forward a net salary of €10m [£8.4m] per season.

7/1 Radamel Falcao is 7/1 with William Hill to score as Atletico Madrid win Copa del Rey understands Falcao was edging towards a move to Chelsea before Monaco's big-money offer turned his head, and Subasic has been informed by the French club that the deal is all but done.

"I will tell you what I have heard, and that is that Falcao is 90% coming to Monaco," the Croatia international told Sportske Novosti.

"For sure, it is what they have told us, with only a small possibility that Monaco could only lose him if Real Madrid were to come in, but that is now unlikely.

"If he does not leave for the Bernabeu, he will come to Monaco."

Falcao, 27, has scored 69 goals in 87 games in all competitions since arriving at the Vicente Calderon from Porto two years ago.
