Manchester City target Falcao happy at Atletico
Manchester City transfer target Radamel Falcao enjoying life at Atletico Madrid
Manchester City transfer target Radamel Falcao says he is happy at Atletico Madrid as he continues to fight for the La Liga title.
The Colombian striker’s 18 league goals this season has led to growing interest from the likes of Premier League sides Man City and Chelsea, but after lots of speculation over his future in recent months, the 26-year-old claims he is happy at Atletico.
“I have three years left on my contract at my club and I am happy and satisfied,” Falcao told reporters.
“It is clear to us what we want, which is to qualify for the Champions League, but if we can fight for the title, then we will. We will continue fighting for the league while it remains a mathematical possibility. We know it is hard because Barcelona are having a faultless season.”
Falcao’s side second in the table, above city rivals Real. However, they are now nine points behind leaders Barcelona.
With the club in the last four of the Copa del Rey and still in the Europa League - a trophy Falcao has won for the last two seasons including with former club Porto - the forward wants to add to his medal collection.
“Obviously in sporting terms I have the ambition to continue to progress and do better than this season, to keep fighting at the top of the Spanish League, the Europa League and in the semi-finals of a tournament like the Copa del Rey. I just think of Atletico,” he added.
After losing Mario Balotelli to AC Milan in the January transfer window, Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini will be keen to add to his squad in the summer, and Falcao is sure to be targeted.
