AS Monaco's attacking pair Falcao and James Rodriguez will not be heading anywhere this summer, insists club vice-president Vadim Vasilyev.

The Colombians have been heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid, with Falcao, 28, expected to don the famous white shirt as he was set to leave Atletico Madrid in 2013 but made a sudden change of heart to join the principality side, while Rodriguez, 22, made heads turn with his top-class performance in the World Cup, finding the back of the net 6 times.
