Football Leaks reveals exactly how much Monaco paid for Radamel Falcao
Less than suspected

If you've always been a bit curious about how much Monaco splashed out on Falcao, then look no further.

Football Leaks is a new football site inspired by WikiLeaks, the website created by Julien Assange which leaked top secret political information to the world's media.

Just like the Wiki version, Football Leaks are dedicated to revealing the darkest secrets in the beautiful game, most of which revolve around the almighty dollar.

One finding supposedly made by the site, involved super agent Jorge Mendes and his client Radamel Falcao.

Mendes infamously secured the Colombian a move to Monaco in 2013 very much against his will, a club he’s still technically owned by.

The fee Monaco paid for Falcao was undisclosed at the time but was estimated at around €60m.  According to Football Leaks, however, Monaco paid  just €43m.
