Real Madrid | Carlo Ancelotti | Radamel Falcao
When it comes to making big-money outlays in the transfer market, Real Madrid are the kingpins of the football world.
Gareth Bale, Luka Modric and Isco all represent their recent forages in the summer months of years gone by, and all of them are evidence that Florentino Perez will splash heartily to improve his squad’s reputation.
Next on the agenda is a world-class forward, as current frontman Karim Benzema has perhaps lost some of his appeal thanks to the inroads made by some of Europe’s other strikers. Luis Suarez was at one point deemed to be Ancelotti’s favoured choice, but in the wake of the World Cup all fingers are now pointed to Radamel Falcao.
The Colombian star is lethal on his day and, as was proven by his time at Atletico Madrid, can navigate La Liga defences as well as anyone around.
