Ex-Prem icon backs Ligue 1 star for Premier League move

Former Premier League star David Ginola believes that Radamel Falcao could complete a stunning summer move from Monaco to England.

The Colombian ace only joined the nouveau-riche Ligue 1 side last year in a mega money switch from Porto.

However, he is rumoured to have failed to settle at the Stade Louis II, and is already questioning whether or not he is at the right club to develop as a player.

Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United are all been linked with swoops for his signature, with the Blues having been in for his services in the past.

Ginola – who is a respected figure in the French footballing world – feels that Falcao may leave Monaco at the end of the season, and that a transfer to the Premier League is a possibility:

“Everybody wants to come and play in England.” He told the Daily Star.

“When he had the choice and decided to go to Monaco, I was surprised in the first place.

“I expected him to go to one of the clubs in England but he’s still young and he has plenty of options in his career.

“His future could lie in Spain, Monaco or England. It’s too early to decide his future now but, why not [move]? Everyone wants to play in England.

“He could play for anyone.”

Falcao is currently out for the rest of the season with a knee injury, which may threaten his chances of representing Colombia in the World Cup later this year.
