TOO DIFFICULT FOR FALCAO
The Atletico Madrid striker Radamel Falcao has said that it is extremely difficult match the budgets of the Spanish clubs Barcelona and Real Madrid, but he feels that his club should be considered as one of the title contenders this season because they are in the second position. The striker is considered as one of the best in Europe right now. He is the only contender for the likes of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo in the Spanish la Liga when it comes to the scoring charts. He has helped Atletico Madrid gain a strong foothold in the table by moving to the second position ahead of their arch rivals Real Madrid.
Even though they are nine points behind leaders Barcelona, Falcao believes that they have done enough in the season to be considered as a title contender. After the recent defeat at the hands of Real Madrid, they have fallen nine points behind the leaders. However, they still have a significant advantage over Real Madrid in the table, and they are now the favourites to finish in the second position. Radamel Falcao has been consistently linked with a move away from the club for the last few months, but he is not expected to move in the January transfer window.
“With the budgets available to Real Madrid and Barcelona, they can have the best players in the world. But it is Barca first, Atletico second and Madrid third. So now we should talk about Barca and Atletico,” said the 26-year-old striker. Falcao has been linked with a £ 48 million move to Chelsea, with the likes of Manchester City and Real Madrid also showing interest in the player. The player is currently second in the goalscoring charts in Spain with 17 goals to his name. Only Lionel Messi is ahead of him in the table.
