Report: Radamel Falcao Open to Joining Real Madrid Next Season in $78 Million Transfer


Radamel Falcao, Diego CostaAtletico Madrid striker Radamel Falcao may be staying in Madrid, but he’s likely moving to the Colchoneros’ biggest rival, Real Madrid, according to online newspaper El Confidencial.

According to the website, the Colombian has told his teammates that there is a tentative agreement that would have him dressing in white next season, after the Merengues pay the 60 million Euros ($77.6 million) buying clause set on him.

The 26-year-old will be the most wanted player in the winter and summer transfers, with Chelsea, Manchester City and Real Madrid looking to be the biggest candidates to acquire the two-time UEFA Europa league top scorer.

Even with the uncertainty around Jose Mourinho, Real Madrid president Florentino Perez sees Falcao as a player any coach would want, and he is determined to buy him — no matter who will be on the club’s bench next season.

Atletico Madrid knows Falcao won’t stay for long, as he can secure a salary much larger than the one he currently earns and can aspire to win more titles with any of the teams interested in him — especially a league title. Yet he stays committed to Atletico’s cause. Falcao has declared before that he would like to eventually play for another club, and his exit next season is considered a given by Atletico’s executives and fans.
