The Transfer Tavern have found this particularly story rather heart warming. Surprisingly.
No matter how bad things get, someone will always want you back. They’ve probably had too many pints this Friday evening, in all fairness.
However, Premier League flop Radamel Falcao is somehow still wanted by yet another big club it seems.
According to Goal, River Plate president Rodolfo D’Onofrio has stated his desire to bring the Colombian forward back to Buenos Aires, should he become available.
A prolific spell with Los Millonarios helped Falcao establish himself as one of the most lethal strikers in world football, something not forgotten by the Argentine giants it seems.
He went on to play for Atletico Madrid and Porto and was widely considered one of the game’s master marksmen before a £50m move to Monaco in 2013, where he suffered a serious knee injury.
Despite seeing his stock plummet after a nightmare two year spell in England with both Manchester and Chelsea, River Plate seem keen on luring him back to South America.
“If Falcao decides to come back to River, he has the doors open to him, we started talking six months ago,” D’Onofrio told TyC Sports.
‘Utopias, impossible dreams do not exist for me.’
‘It’s the same story with Falcao, if he wants to play at River we will move mountains to bring him back.’
Is a return to South America the best thing for Falcao? Do you feel sorry for him to a certain extent?
