AS Monaco striker Radamel Falcao says he's happy with the Ligue 1 club.

Falcao has been linked with Chelsea and Real Madrid amid talk of a financial row between ASM and the French League.

The 27-year-old rejected the reports out of hand, though, telling L'Equipe: "It's a totally false article. I'm very happy at Monaco and I believe in the project.

"Everything is false, even the numbers quoted by the press are false. I feel great at the club and I'm going to stay here."

Monaco boss Claudio Ranieri also gave the reports similar short shrift, adding: "What do you want me to tell you? The rumours are rumours.

"Falcao is staying at Monaco."
