Radamel Falcao

Falcao has officially signed with recently promoted Ligue 1 side, Monaco. Falcao is one of the big money moves the club has already made this summer and the official transfer window hasn’t even started yet. Falcao will provide this new team a nice scoring touch and will make the club a contender for a possible Champions League qualification and Ligue 1 title. It will be interesting to see if Monaco will have the necessary chemistry to become a legitimate team. It may take time for the team to truly live up to its potential. That being said, with their wealthy Russian owner they will have all the necessary pieces to become a top club. We have seen this recently with PSG; money can buy success. ¬†Falcao is considered by some to be a top 5 player in the world and he has a great opportunity to great an identity for himself with this new club.

Will Neymar join Messi next year?

There has been talk for many months now that Neymar and Barcelona have an agreement in place to send Neymar to Camp Nou. This appears to be the next destination for Neymar and now the price is the only question. While Real Madrid and Bayern Munich may offer him more money, many reports indicate that Barcelona is the only team Neymar actually wants to play for. Barcelona is a perfect fit for Neymar and by joining a team with other stars, he will not have to carry all the pressure and focus that he had at Santos.
