Colombian forward Radamel Falcao insists he remains happy with the club, after more speculation about the striker heading to Real Madrid.

This week Madrid club president Florentino Perez stated that the Spanish giants are still interested in bringing the former Atletico Madrid striker to the Bernebau this summer.

Perez was quoted as saying: "Falcao is a great player and I am aware he wants to play for Madrid."

However Falcao has denied any desire of his to return to the Spanish capital, saying he is happy with life at Stade Louis II.

"I can only thank Florentino Perez for what he's said, but I must respect my current club Monaco, where I am feeling very well," said Falcao.

"I am very happy at Monaco. This is not the time to talk about Real Madrid's potential interest in me out of respect for my current club."

The Colombian signed from Atletico Madrid for a club record fee of £51m, sealing a five-year deal which will keep him at the club until summer 2018.

The 27-year-old has started life well at Monaco, scoring seven goals in nine appearances. Monaco are currently top of Ligue 1 after nine games.
