Real Madrid and Monaco are engaged in serious negotiations over Radamel Falcao

The report goes on to add that Real Madrid are unwilling to meet the €45 million paid by Monaco last summer, but Falcao, despite signing a five-year deal that paid him €14 million per season, inserted a clause into his contract that stated that Monaco were obligated to negotiate should Real Madrid be interested.

The report further added that while they are currently in negations, per Falcao’s request.

Real Madrid may wait until the winter transfer window to complete a deal for Falcao, however, to see how his surgically repaired knee recovers.

Real Madrid’s injury concerns were lessened following the announcement by physiotherapist, Joaquin Juan, who confirmed to Spanish sports daily, AS that Falcao’s knee is perfect.

“The knee is perfect, it’s in spectacular shape.  He has a powerful physique and he regenerates the tissues very quickly.”

Real Madrid would like to retain Karim Benzema to pair Falcao with him.
