Monaco: Radamel Falcao was dropped at the last minute from Monaco's matchday squad for Saturday's Ligue 1 clash with Lille amid mounting speculation that the Colombian is on his way out of the principality club.
Striker Radamel Falcao
Falcao started and scored the winning goal against Nantes last weekend and had been expected to start for Leonardo Jardim's team at the Stade Louis II. He was named in the squad, but took no part in the warm-up and was not even included among the substitutes.
The former Atletico Madrid striker has been strongly linked with a move to Real Madrid on a season-long loan, but the reigning European champions will have to move quickly with the transfer window closing on Monday.
