Monaco have got real problems. Even worse than the owners exorbitant divorce is the FFP regs. The PSG's and City's still have decent size stadiums, clever sponsorship and other revenue streams, Monaco have a piss ant stadium and average gate of about 17 people.
Monaco cannot get round the regs and are well and truly screwed for FFP, hence the drastic change in strategy.
Is Falcao even over his injury properly. I didn't think he'd started a game for Monaco yet in the French League and what with the international break they might have a whole month (or £1.4 million worth of wages/player) not available. Just crazy.
