Real Madrid reserve the number 9 jersey for AS Monaco’s Falcao [AS]
- July 2, 2014
Real Madrid are stepping up their pursuit of AS Monaco striker Falcao and have even gone as far as reserving the number 9 jersey for the Colombian striker.
Falcao endured a difficult first year in Monaco after his move to France from Atletico Madrid broke transfer records. The icing on the cake was him being ruled out of the World Cup due to an injury he picked up at the start of the year.
It is said that Falcao wanted to move to Real from Atletico but didn’t want to anger or betray fans so decided at least a season in Monaco would be for the best.
Although Karim Benzema currently wears the number 9 shirt, he would like to switch to the vacant number 10 jersey, the number he wears for France.
