Both Chelsea and Liverpool fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are looking seriously unimpressed at the latest claim from Tuttosport, who think that Radamel Falcao has agreed terms with Real Madrid.
The Monaco forward has long been linked with a move to Chelsea and as everyone knows, the Blues are still desperate for a top forward to arrive this summer.
Liverpool meanwhile are keen on the Colombia international as a potential replacement should Luis Suarez leave for Barcelona – but Falcao has made it very clear that he will not move to England.
That is because Real Madrid are keen on him and are willing to not only pay the asking price but also offer him a pretty decent wage packet if we do say so ourselves.
As one of our punters notes, it is not like this move is a shock given that the forward left Atletico Madrid for Monaco last summer as he was prevented from the move to Real Madrid due to the pact of non-aggression between the Madrid rivals.
However, after a year at Monaco, Falcao is free to return to Madrid – but this time as a player for the white half of the city; not that the rest of the residents will have forgotten his time at Atleti mind you!
Chelsea and Liverpool fans. Is this a massive blow or would you rather miss out on the forward after his latest long-term injury spell out? Let us know your thoughts below.
