Diego Simeone behind Falcao, whatever he chooses

Radamel Falcao has had another wonderful season, and capped it off with a stunning Copa del Rey win over Real Madrid last week. His success has made him a target for a number of top name clubs across the European landscape.

Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone has said he would understand if the striker left for greener pastures, and wouldn’t hold it against him. “I don’t know anything official yet,” Simeone told Marca. “I have known him since he was a child and I wish him all the best. If he feels that he needs to make a move, I’ll be happy for him. If he stays with us, I’ll be happy too.”

Falcao’s 32 goals this season has him on priority lists for teams like Chelsea, Manchester City and most notably Monaco. It was reported a few weeks ago that a deal had been struck with the French Ligue 1 club which seems to have deep pockets, but the 27-year old Colombian has done nothing but deflect those reports.

“I haven’t thought about a move too much,” he told Sky Sports News. “The reality is that I have three years left on my contract with Atletico.” “It’s true that last season during the summer there was a lot of speculation with clubs being named as a possible destination, but the truth is that I’ve not thought about it.” “Of course, it depends on what the financial needs of my club are and what sort of efforts Atletico make to keep me.”
