Falcao appeared set to sign for Portuguese outfit after River Plate paid off the £340,000 debt they owed on the player.

However, according to news daily A Bola, The Reds have lodged a late £3million offer to beat Benfica to the signing of the player.

Benfica and River Plate are thought to have agreed a £3.5 million deal, but the final decision now rests with Falcao.
