Atletico Madrid striker Radamel Falcao has played down talk linking him with Premier League moves to Manchester City or Chelsea this summer, reports Sky Sports.

The 26-year-old Colombian international has emerged as one of the hottest properties in European football, and has added to his growing reputation with 26 goals in just 37 appearances for the La Liga outfit this season.

After arriving in Spain from Porto last August, Falcao has made an impressive start to life at the Vicente Calderon, and the prolific forward insists he has not even thought about the possibility of another transfer.

"The press said that Manchester City and Chelsea want me, but I am calm about this," he said. "I know La Liga is watched all across the world and it is normal that if I do good work many clubs watch me.

"But I insist now I am only focused on obtaining success with Atletico."

Former Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas was credited with an interest in bringing Falcao to Stamford Bridge during his brief spell in west London.

With Roman Abramovich expected to continue the planned overhaul of the Blues' ageing playing squad this summer, the South American could still be on the club's shortlist.

Roberto Di Matteo is currently overseeing first-team affairs, and is looking to guide Chelsea into the Champions League semi-finals with victory over Benfica on Wednesday.
