MOST COMMENTED

During an interview on with the Spanish television program “Punto Pelota,” Radamel Falcao, the world’s most sought-after striker, revealed that he does not want to leave Atletico Madrid, although he admitted that due to the club’s problems, he could be sold anyways.

When asked about his future, the Colombian said: “I never ever think about it and the wish to leave (Atletico) has never entered my head.” However, he pointed out: “It’s something that is not up to me. The club has needs and depends on certain results. There are a lot of factors. What I can say is that I’m very happy.”

Earlier this month, Atletico general manager Miguel Angel Gil Marin admitted that selling Falcao for 60 million euros (nearly $78 million) would immediately solve the club’s crippling financial problems.

Later in the “Punto Pelota” interview, Falcao dismissed his father’s claims that he always dreamed of playing for Real Madrid, and that Chelsea or Manchester City were also likely destinations. “Parents sometimes talk and give their opinions and that’s it. I haven’t lived with my father in 12 years,” the 26-year-old said. “I have become a man and he, at times, has not been involved in that process. He doesn’t live with me, so he doesn’t know what my dreams and objectives are.”
