SPANISH FOOTBALL | SPORTS: MANCHESTER UNITED ABOUT TO CLOSE FALCAO ?

MANCHESTER UNITED ABOUT TO CLOSE FALCAO ?

New twist to the ongoing rumours about a possible next season destination for Atletico de Madrid Colombian International striker Radamel Falcao. The player was last said to be close to Chelsea FC but today Spanish Sports daily "Marca" claim that English giant Manchester United has entered the scene in a very big way.

FALCAO 2013

Negotiations are advanced, so much so, that the Sports newspaper speculates that an up-front payment may have already been made. The Atletico de Madrid forward has a price tag of between 55-60M€, of which Manchester United could be manoeuvring to get closer to 55M€ in transfer payment.

From a non-journalist point of view, & out of the "Marca" marketing machine, I only ask if this has any real strength when you consider that Manchester United has Van Persie & Wayne Rooney upfront already. Without taking away any "journalistic uncover work" from the story I could also imagine this begin a filtered news boost to strengthen the players negotiating position with Chelsea if indeed they are close as said in the last weeks. News of this type reaching Chelsea FC officials could soften the Clubs stance knowing that a direct rival was interfering in "their" negotiations.


Either way its another possibility for a player who is an absolute guarantee of goals & one of the Best in The World at his job. No doubt more will be unveiled in coming weeks & months.

Stay tuned!
