AFTER HIS PROLIFIC scoring tear at Atletico Madrid in 2013 in which he scored 34 goals in 41 caps for the club, the Colombian striker nicknamed El Tigre (The Tiger) left Spain’s La Liga when he struck a 5-year deal that doubled his salary to $70 million with AS Monaco, bankrolled by Russian billionaire Dmitry Rybolovlev. Falcao justified the move to the club saying his heart had been with it since his idol Thierry Henry had played there. Also like his formal idol, he picked up Gillette as a sponsor, fronting a campaign airing in his homeland. Falcao spent two miserable seasons on loan at Man U and Chelsea before he returned to Monaco in 2016 to help AS Monaco win the Ligue 1 Championship for the 2016-17 season.

According to L’Equipe, he’s the 9th highest-paid player in France’s Ligue 1 earning $875,000 a month.

Falcao and Henry, 41, reunited in October when the latter was announced as AS Monaco’s coach, replacing Leonardo Jardim. (Figure as of 2016).
