Deadline Day: Man Utd Agree To Pay Radamel Falcao’s Wages In Full – Season Loan Set To Cost An Absolute Fortune!

By Chris Wright

Britain Soccer Man Utd Falcao

It’s edging ever closer and Manchester United are now on the home stretch in their bid to finalise a loan deal for Monaco striker Radamel Falcao.

However, the Telegraph are reporting that United have had to agree to pay the Colombian striker’s absolutely extortionate Monaco salary (£18million per annum) in full in order to push the deal through, meaning that they’re going to have to find £346,000-a-week to shovel into the 29-year-old’s bank account.

We can almost hear Wayne Rooney throwing a tantrum from here.

Anyway, the Telegraph have calculated that on top of the £6million loan fee, United’s year-long lend of Falcao is going to cost the club an eye-watering £24million!

Aye aye aye!!!

    All bull, as he’s a Monaco player, there’ll be no tax, meaning United pay Monaco about 180-200k a week, which they pay Falcao with.

    @Zam . No, Monaco pays taxes on salaries
    France has approved a law last december stating that Monaco WILL have to pay taxes on wages like any other french club (not specifying Monaco, but stating that any club affiliated with the french league will have the same tax burden)
    I believe that might be a reason why Monaco are trying to sell him, they bought him on the premises of no tax and that has changed.

    incorrect,as he’s working in the UK he is subject to UK wage laws which means his salary is not tax free
