England is not on Falcao’s itinerary as he is set to join Monaco.

Radamel Falcao’s days at Atletico Madrid are numbered.

The coveted Colombian striker appeared to have bid goodbye to Atletico fans after their last home game in the La Liga against Mallorca which ended at 0-0 on Sunday.

According to reports, the 27-year-old Falcao has a price tag of around 60 million euros ($77.6 million) and is set to join Monaco, the French club have just won promotion back to Ligue 1.

But Atletico coach Diego Simeone told reporters at a news conference that Atletico had not made any official comment on Falcao’s possible exit.

Other speculations also linked Falcao to a possible move to Premier League clubs, among them Chelsea.

“What more can I say, just thanks for what he has given us if he has to leave,” Simeone said. “Everything that happens to Falcao makes me happy.”

Simeone also coached Falcao when they were both at River Plate.

Monaco have already signed Joao Moutinho and James Rodriguez from Falcao’s former club Porto for a combined fee of 70 million euros.
