Radamel Falcao snubs Premier League offers to wait for Real Madrid

Liverpool have tentatively asked Radamel Falcao's agent Jorge Mendes about the Colombian striker's availability, but according to AS that enquiry was knocked back along with interest from Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur because the South American star wants to join Real Madrid.

Falcao has his heart set on a return to La Liga despite spending a single season with Monaco, following a blockbuster £52m switch to the mega-rich principality last summer.

The 28-year-old is under contract with Monaco until 2018 and currently undergoing extensive rehabilitation on a cruciate ligament injury which ended his chances of leading Colombia into the World Cup, but that hasn't stopped the potent predator being very much a man in-demand.

Life after Suarez?

Sunday morning's report from Spain shows the first fleeting signs that Reds boss Brendan Rodgers is prepared to entertain life at Liverpool without Suarez, who after spending a large portion of last summer being linked with Arsenal eventually stayed at Anfield and scored 31 goals in a magnificent Premier League campaign.

Suarez is still a man very much in-demand though and its now Barcelona and Real Madrid who could calling rather than a direct Premier League rival, which raises the stakes and a valuation touching £68m.

Falcao is highly unlikely to view a move to England as in his best interests though regardless of what happens with Suarez, after turning City and Spurs down flat before summer silly season even gets going.

Despite still being considered a hero by Atletico fans the forward nicknamed 'El Tigre' wants to play for their bitter rivals Real, believing that there's room for him to shine at the Bernabeu even if Karim Benzema stays put.

Your move Madrid

Falcao and Suarez are two of the top stars waiting to see if Real Madrid feel the need to spend more shed loads of cash on a squad which finally secured the club's 10th Champions League crown last season, under the stewardship of Carlo Ancelotti.

Madrid already boast a feared forward trio of Gareth Bale, Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema, but that hasn't stopped them courting Suarez and Falcao as potential additions.

Despite not having the World Cup as a showcase Falcao's representative Mendes has been a busy man fielding interest in one of his star clients, but Madrid are yet to pick up the phone and get potentially the summer's biggest transfer merry-go-round off and running, just yet anyway.
