Real Madrid have informed the agent of AS Monaco striker Radamel Falcao that he's too rich for them.

Falcao has told Jorge Mendes to get him a move to Real as quickly as possible after struggling to settle in France.

But El Confidencial says Mendes has been informed by Real that the outlay required to bring Falcao back to Madrid is just too high.

Falcao is on €14 million-a-year at ASM and covering such wages, plus his transfer price, is simply too much for Real to consider.
