AS Monaco have slapped an £80 million price-tag on star striker Radmael Falcao. The Daily Star says Chelsea will have to part with £80m to secure Monaco star Falcao or offer Fernando Torres or Demba Ba in part-exchange.

Chelsea had hoped to take Falcao on-loan in January - and the Colombian has pushed for such a proposal.

But Le 10Sport says Monaco are not keen on letting the former River Plate man go on a temporary basis and will only consider a permanent transfer.

The Ligue 1 club have placed an £80m price tag on Falcao, however would also be willing to accept a bid of under their original valuation if Torres or Ba were included as part of the deal.
