New Monaco striker Radamel Falcao is at the centre of a mystery over his move from Atletico Madrid, according to Charles Perrin of the Daily Express.
The Colombia international joined the Ligue 1 club this summer in a £51 million deal, but his new club are at odds with the French football authorities over the deal, claims the report.
In his article, Perrin says Falcao is earning a tax-free salary, a luxury that has not been granted to other French clubs and gives Monaco an advantage in attracting players.
Monaco may now have to sell Falcao or face a £75 million fine, the report claims, but the club has used its official Twitter account @ASMFC_MONACO to deny the forward will be sold.
