Radamel Falcao: Looks set to stay at Monaco

Falcao only joined Claudio Ranieri's side in May, but has been constantly linked with a move to Premier League side Chelsea.

However, Vasilyev says the 27-year-old Colombia international forward is integral to their plans of becoming a major European force.

Vasilyev said: "People believe it is suspicious to have such a great player in France. They ask 'When will he leave? In January or in June?'

"We have always stated that Falcao is essential to our project. He allows us to hire other players and build a whole team."

The vice-chairman failed to rule out the possibility of signing Manchester City's Vincent Kompany and Barcelona goalkeeper Victor Valdes.

"Vincent Kompany or (Porto defender) Eliaquim Mangala? I won't confirm we could hire them. We are also thinking about younger players," he said.

"People talk about Victor Valdes, because he will be a free agent and he is a friend of Eric Abidal. That was the link.

"Valdes is a great player, I can't say more."

heyremind me of Utd's treble winning side. Swashbuckling and risk prone. We ha Jaap Stam to paper over the cracks at the back though. Not sure they have their Jaap yet.

he solution is to not feel sorry for any of Jabba, Gold or Sullivan. They're all deeply unpleasant and all deserve each other. If only West Ham would sign Barton and Suarez then no one would ever need to despise any other club.
