Atletico Madrid striker Radamel Falcao had his pick of Europe’s top clubs this summer.
The Colombia international has opted to move to Moneyco. The French side are not currently established among Europe’s elite, but they do happen to have a lot of dosh.
Cynics have been suggesting that could be the motivating factor in Falcao’s decision to choose Monaco as his destination. The goal-machine has been happy to set the record straight.
He said: “My heart has been with Monaco since my idol Thierry Henry played there.”
