Radamel Falcao who missed the World Cup due to knee injury has been on Real Madrid’s radar. The Spanish giants were eyeing him on a loan deal but Monaco manager Leonardo Jardim has told that his star player will not be leaving the French side this summer.
Falcao played 20 minutes against La Liga side Valencia in the Emirates Cup which was his first 20 minutes since January.
Jardim said: “At this point Falcao is our player and he’s with us 100 per cent and we don’t want to let him go.”
It was strongly reported that the Colombian might follow his friend James Rodriguez who joined Real Madrid from Monaco few weeks ago after impressing at the World Cup. Rodriguez won the Golden boot award at the World Cup.
The boss further added: “It’s a pity we lost James but we can count on Falcao staying. Regardless of what people say, he’s our player.”
Falcao is closing on his full fitness and will start the season with 100% fitness.
While on the other side, Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech is being linked with Real Madrid.
Madrid number one keeper Iker Casillas is set to leave the Bernabeu this summer according to reports and Cech might be his replacement as he will not be the first choice keeper for Chelsea after Thibaut Courtois return to the Stamford Bridge.
