‘No Madrid, Chelsea clause for Falcao’

Monaco have made clear that Radamel Falcao will not have a clause in his contract to leave the principality for Chelsea or Real Madrid.

The 27-year-old is on the verge of completing a €45m transfer from Atletico Madrid, with it believed that he will be confirmed at the Stade Louis II on Friday.

Understood to be signing a five-year deal worth €14m a season after tax, rumours have been that Falcao has only agreed to the move with the proviso that a clause is inserted allowing him to leave Monaco should Real Madrid or Chelsea come in with an offer.

However, the Ligue 1 outfit’s sporting director has made clear that this is not the case.

“No, there's no clause,” Vadim Vasilyev has told L’Equipe today.

“Radamel really believes in our project. It's almost done – there are just some details to be finalised.”

Vasilyev also confirmed that Monaco’s fee for the player is below the €60m buyout clause in his Atletico contract.
