Radamel Falcao could sign for Manchester City

Published 2 Comments

Manchester City have joined the race to sign AS Monaco striker Radamel Falcao and are now the overwhelming favourites to secure the Colombia international’s signature before the summer transfer window closes on Monday night.

Respected Sky Italia journalist, Gianluca Di Marzio, tweeted on Saturday morning: “Falcao to Manchester City”.

Man City now in pole position

This was then followed up with a post on his official website, which explains that Manchester City can “burn” all the other interested clubs - believed to be Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester United, Liverpool and Real Madrid - thanks to their superior financial resources, after entering the market for the world-class number nine.

Negredo could join Valencia

The report adds that Man City striker Alvaro Negredo, who is currently sidelined with a broken foot, could join La Liga outfit Valencia to make way for Falcao’s arrival at the Etihad Stadium.

The reining Premier League champions already boast the most fearsome attacking line-up in English football, with Negredo currently in the same squad as Sergio Aguero, Edin Dzeko and Stevan Jovetic.

Spain international Negredo enjoyed an excellent debut campaign with the Citizens, scoring 23 goals in 48 appearances, but few would argue that Falcao is not a class above.

The South American striker - who is valued at £35 million, but would cost £20 million to sign on a season-long loan - has missed most of 2014 with a serious knee injury, but is now back in action and ready to pass a medical if required.
