Here is a rundown of the rumoured biggest transfers of the upcoming transfer window:
Radamel Falcao to Monaco
Monaco, managed currently by Claudio Ranieri, made headlines last summer with the signing of highly rated River Plate youngster Lucas Ocampos for €16 million. The Russian billionaire in charge of AS Monaco, Dmitry Rybolovlev, is determined to once again help the club scale the heights of French football and he sees the signing Falcao as a major stepping stone in this development that will serve to attract other stars to the club. It is said if the move happens Falcao will double his wage and there may even be a clause inserted into the contract which could allow him to leave the club after a season as Monaco are currently in a dispute with the rest of French football concerning their laxed tax laws – something the other clubs feel gives them an unfair advantage. The speculated price of the transfer is rumoured to be around €60m.

Manchester United cantered to their 20th league title on Monday night, ending the foregone conclusion the title race had become towards the final third of the season. The emphatic gap between United and City stands as a testament to the frightening consistency Ferguson’s side displayed this season. This in itself is an ode to the seemingly unending ability Sir Alex has of breeding winning teams time and time again. When you compare the two squads of the Manchester teams, there is no obvious difference in quality between the two. The difference lies only in the managers.

In a roller-coaster encounter in Kiev, England managed to battle back from 2-1 down to win 3-2 and in doing so, knocking Erik Hamren’s side out with their first ever competitive defeat of Sweden. England now just need a point from Tuesday’s game with co-hosts Ukraine to progress from Group D after a battling comeback led by the irrepressible Theo Walcott.
