AS Monaco star Radamel Falcao has revealed that he is “studying” offers to leave the French outfit ahead of the 2019-20 campaign
The 33-year-old enters the final year of his contract with Les Monégasques and has yet to get any signs from the club’s hierarchy over a potential extension.
Faced with an uncertain future at the Stade Louis II, the former Atletico Madrid forward is assessing the prospect of locking up a new lucrative contract this transfer window that can as well be the last of his professional football career.
Although well past his prime, El Tiger does not lack potential landing spots, with Galatasaray and Valencia both looking to acquire him this summer.
Monaco secured a narrow 1-0 win over Sampdoria in a friendly meeting that took place on Saturday, and the Colombian has admitted that he could depart the French principality in the post-match interview.
“The truth is that I still have a year of the contract and the club did not offer me an extension,” he said.
“So I have to think about my future, my family.
“I am studying the offers I have been offered. These are good opportunities for my career.
“I have to think about my family.”
The 2016-17 Ligue 1 champions barely dodged relegation last season, with Falcao’s haul of 15 league goals giving an immeasurable contribution to Monaco’s efforts to preserve a top-flight status.
With that in mind, Leonardo Jardim intends to deploy the lethal striker as his first-option forward in the forthcoming season, but should the club fails to guarantee him a secure future, Jardim may have to find a new central forward soon.
