In news that will not only shake up the Premier League but also the majority of Europe, Goal.com claim that hot property forward Radamel Falcao now wishes to stay at Atletico Madrid.
The striker has been linked with a whole host of clubs and it was even rumoured that a pre-contract deal with Real Madrid had been penned. Not only this but Chelsea and Manchester City have been long-term admirers of the forward and were thought to both be in with a fantastic shout of landing the Colombia international.
However, after Falcao claimed to MundoDeportivo staying at Atleti would be the “best option” and noted that: “As a group we have the clear goal of qualifying for the Champions League. If we maintain the same level that we have showed, we will achieve our objectives.”
He also cast further doubt on a move from Spain gushing that: “I have come to one of the biggest clubs in Spain, in a very important league. It has allowed me to grow as a footballer, to become known in other parts of the world. It has been a very positive step.”
Of course should Falcao surprise us all and stay put, our punters point out that it would probably make Napoli hitman Edinson Cavani an even hotter property this summer.
Will Falcao stay at the Vicente Calderon this summer? Rate this rumour below.
