Manchester City line up Falcao

According to El Confidencial Manchester City are poised to make Radamel Falcao a summer transfer target and are willing to pay €50m for the Colombian striker.

Falcao cost Atlético Madrid €40m when they bought him from Porto at the start of this season, the most expensive signing in the club’s history, but City are understood to have sounded out his agent about a possible move to the Etihad Stadium in the close season.

Having been brought in as replacement for the outgoing Diego Forlán and Manchester City-bound Kun Aguero, the 26-year-old has lived up to expectations at the Vicente Calderón and has already scored 25 goals this campaign - 19 in La Liga and six in Europe. However, despite a superb debut season in Madrid he was amazingly subjected to whistles from the fans in a recent home game with Granada before silencing the stands with a last-minute goal. Falcao then went on to score in the following three games - against Besiktas, Real Mallorca and Athletic Bilbao - and although he insists the whistles do not bother him he may be open to offers if he feels his work is not appreciated.

With rumours persisting that Aguero is likely to be on Real Madrid’s radar before the start of next season, City boss Roberto Mancini could be looking to strengthen his attacking options as not all his other strikers - Mario Balotelli, Edin Dzeko, Carlos Tevez and Emmanuel Adebayor (on loan at Tottenham Hotspur) - are expected to remain with the club.
