AS Monaco star Radamel Falcao is willing to take a pay-cut to move to England. The Daily Express says he is ready to accept a pay cut to force through a move away from Monaco this summer but Manchester City still lead Liverpool and Manchester United in the race for the Colombian striker.

Reports earlier this week suggested that Juventus could trump the Premier League trio in the race for Falcao.

But fresh reports in Italy suggest that it is in fact City that are leading the race for the former Atletico man, with Real Madrid a close second.

Liverpool and United find themselves further down the list of the player's preferred destinations along with Inter Milan.
