Radamel Falcao would consider swapping Monaco for Liverpool on a year long loan basis should the Anfield club pay him an enormous 200k-a-week in wages.
The news, from The Sunday and Daily Express, would see the Columbian join for a year and would surely whip Liverpool fans into a frenzy. The Reds got off to a winning start in yesterday’s Premier League opener versus Southampton at Anfield and despite goals from Raheem Sterling and Daniel Sturridge sealing a 2-1 win, a below par overall performance further compounded media insistence that the club will severely Luis Suarez. However, the potential arrival of a global superstar such as Falcao would go a long way in putting to bed such suggestions.
Falcao scored 10 goals in an injury-blighted season for Monaco last year after sealing a sensational £52million move from Spanish side Atletico Madrid in 2013 where he hit 52 goals in 67 La Liga appearances.
Any future deal would be a significant coup for the club and although it remains unlikely, the latest news that the forward would be open to such a switch will only fuel the rumours further. Brendan Rodgers has recently confirmed that the club are still in the market for an attacking player having missed out on Alexis Sanchez and deciding against signing Loic Rémy at the last minute.
