AS Monaco - Splashing the cash:

Look out ladies and gentleman - we have a new money splasher in French side AS Monaco..... They recently joined Ligue 1 again after being promoted this season, and want to become one of Europe's elite clubs.

They have shown their signal of intent by signing Porto's star duo Joao Moutinho and James Rodriguez as well as the world's best striker Radamel Falcao for £110million pounds between all three players with insane wages per week for all three.

£60million swoop: Monaco have completed the signing of Porto duo James Rodriguez and Joao Moutinho.
Good move? Critics are hovering over the £50million move Falcao completed to Monaco.

They have their super-rich owner to thank for their signings, and rumours are flying that they will be signing a lot more top class players before the transfer window closes in August including Victor Valdes, Tevez, Marchisio, Nasri and Rooney.

Red-hot striker Radamel Falcao could have gone anywhere in Europe - Real Madrid, Manchester United, Chelsea, PSG, Bayern Munich but he decided to join the new revolution at Monaco... expect analysis and detail over the next few months about this move.

Remember PSG did this a couple of years ago? Now they may have tough competition for the Ligue 1 crown.... and a fellow country rival in the Champions League soon...
