Atletico Madrid reveal interest in Falcao from Chelsea and Man City

Premier League duo Chelsea and Manchester City were two of the clubs interested in signing Atletico Madrid striker Radamel Falcao during the transfer window, the Spanish club’s chief executive has said, according to ESPN.



Miguel Angel Gil Marin revealed he rejected interest from both Chelsea and City as well as big-spending French side Paris Saint-Germain and an unnamed Russian club. However, Gil Marin added that the financial disparity between Atletico and Real Madrid and Barcelona meant it was inevitable Falcao would have to be sold sooner rather than later, as the club could not afford to keep rejecting the kind of money on the table for the 26-year-old.


Gil Marin said: “You only have to look at what happened this summer. Apart from Athletic and ourselves, everyone has had to sell big names because they needed to survive in the current environment of bankruptcy. A French club [PSG], a Russian and two English [Chelsea and Man City] came for Falcao and he stayed because we took a risk we would be able to make our payments.


Falcao underscored his worth with his display in the European Super Club against one of his reported suitors, Chelsea. The Colombian centre-forward bagged a first-half hat-trick against the Champions League holders, his second treble in a week after days earlier putting three past Athletic Bilbao in a La Liga meeting.
