The La Liga side have already got their hands on one trophy this season, with Falcao single-handedly destroying the London Premier League club and current champions of Europe to claim the UEFA Super Cup title.

“I am enjoying how it’s going and my main objective is to continue scoring goals so that we can bring great success to the club.

“2012 is my year without a doubt and I believe I can win titles, but only with the help of my team-mates at both Atletico and Colombia.”

Atletico may have to fight away offers for their star player in the January transfer window, with La Liga rivals Real Madrid and Barcelona thought to be keeping tabs on him, along with many top clubs across Europe.
