The forward seems more in demand than the winning lottery ticket and has been linked with Chelsea heavily in the past few months. The striker for his part has professed love for just about every club and league going, and has strongly refuted that Real Madrid have got a deal in the bag.
In a statement that will give hope to Chelsea, Paris Saint Germain and even Manchester City fans, following their links with the Colombian in The Guardian this month, the striker claimed to Antena 3: “Everything is a lie. Lately there has been all kinds of reports about me. All those that say I ate with Florentino are false. Neither is it true that I travelled with Ronaldo to the Ballon d’Or gala.”
Whilst Chelsea may have signed Demba Ba from Newcastle United this January, they are still on the look out for a world class forward and a swap deal involving misfit Fernando Torres and Falcao plus a huge deal of cash obviously has been mooted previously. Atleti are resigned to losing the player this summer yet it is expected that he will see out the season at the Vicente Calderon.
