Tottenham transfer news: "Spurs join Falcao race"
19th August 2013 8:23am BST
Tottenham Hotspur could make a surprise cut-price bid for Colombian striker Radamel Falcao after reports he wants to quit his new club Monaco after just two months.
Falcao is said to be unhappy in the principality amid reports his £12 million-a-year salary could be cut in half by changes proposed by president Francois Hollande.
The player, joined from Atletico Madrid for close to £50 million, is also said to be disappointed by the club's lack of ambition, despite the addition of a number of players over the summer.
Spurs have long admired Falcao but baulked at his massive price tag. However, should Spurs complete the sale of Welsh winger Gareth Bale to to Real Madrid in an £85 million deal, it would put the north London side in a good position.
A Spurs source told SportsDirect News: "If Monaco have to sell, they won't really be in a position to negotiate hard."
Chelsea and Manchester City have also been linked with the player.
