Okay, yes, it is a story about yet another player that Man City are rumoured to be looking at signing. And yes, yet another striker too. As if they don’t have enough attacking options at the club – with Balotelli, Tevez, Aguero and Dzeko all trying their best to cement a position in the starting 11, City are looking at Columbian wonderplayer Falcao.
Manchester City’s chief scout has stated his admiration for the Atletico Madrid striker, whilst he himself yesterday told Sky Sports that he believes the Premier League is a great league. A come-and-get-me plea perhaps, aimed at the likes of Chelsea or City? Perhaps, but the likelihood is that either of these 2 would need to stump up the likes of £40 million for Atletico to part with their star man.
With Falcao at the club Atletico Madrid have been in superb form, with La Liga currently a 3 horse race – a feat in itself when you consider the history of La Liga and the Madrid vs Barca affair. Rademel Falcao went onto admit that ex-Premier League striker Faustino Asprilla was his all-time favourite player, another fellow Columbian.
