Monaco never had any plans to sell Radamel Falcao during the transfer window according to vice-president Vadim Vasilyev.
Vasilyev says Falcao remains an integral part of their squad and wants Falcao to see out his current contract in Monaco, which still has another two years to run.
“AC Milan never contacted me for him and I read a lot of things about it,” Vasilyev told L’Equipe.
“The rumours about China was true. I don’t believe it anymore. The transfers window is shut, and they [the CSL] have introduced a luxury tax on transfers that makes it unlikely to put so much money on such a player.
“And then we want to keep him, he is the pillar of our project. I would like [that] he [will] go [to] the end of his contract.”
