Falcao confesses admiration for PSG amidst transfer rumors
Chelsea transfer target Radamel Falcao is being linked to Paris Saint-Germain once again. Rumors of a move to the big-spending French club started after Radamel Falcao praised the “ambition” of Carlo Ancelotti’s side.
Radamel Falcao has been in spectacular form for Atletico Madrid this season. The Colombian goal-scoring machine would have been the top goal scorer in La Liga with 18 goals this season had it not been for Lionel Messi’s unachievable tally of 28 goals.
Nonetheless, the 26-year-old is one of the hottest transfer prospects in the football market. Radamel Falcao, who has scored 22 goals in 20 appearances this season, has been linked to a move to Chelsea for over a year and a half now.
Last summer it was reported Radamel Falcao had inked a covert gentleman’s agreement with Chelsea, which will see him switch sides to Stamford Bridge next year. Earlier this week, the Colombian international snubbed all transfer reports and confided he was happy to stay at Atletico Madrid till then end of the season.
In recent weeks, Chelsea have grown silent on acquiring the services of Radamel Falcao. In stark contrast, Paris Saint-Germain are being heavily linked to a move for the former Porto forward. Other clubs willing to pay the €60 million release clause in Radamel Falcao’s contract are Real Madrid and Manchester City.
In spite of such rumors Radamel Falcao is happy to play for Atletico Madrid, at least till the end of the season. In a recent interview to the French TV station Telefoot, Radamel Falcao confessed he was thoroughly impressed by the progress of the Ligue 1 side and the ambition the club’s Qatari president Nasser Al-Khelaifi was showing.
“France is a marvelous country,” Radamel Falcao said. “PSG have a very ambitious sporting project. They have invested a lot of money to put together a powerful team.”
Radamel Falcao admitted he had been linked to transfer moves to Paris Saint-Germain during the January transfer window, but he was not thinking about moving away from Atletico Madrid.
“I am very happy [at Atletico], they love me a lot, they make me feel important,” Radamel Falcao added. “I like it a lot in the city [Madrid].”
