Falcao reiterates Atletico commitment

December 30, 2012

DUBAI, Dec 29: Colombian striker Radamel Falcao has no plans to leave Atletico Madrid, although he acknowledged on Saturday he was filled with “pride” by talk that several of the world’s top clubs are interested in signing him next year.

Falcao’s 17 goals this season has been a key reason why Atletico Madrid have kept pace with Barcelona at the top of Spanish standings.

His goal-scoring prowess also has sparked rumours that several big-spending clubs, including Chelsea and Manchester City, would try to sign him as soon as January.

But at a Dubai football conference, Falcao said he was “very happy” at Atletico.

“I plan to see out my three-year contract with Atletico,” he said. “My only concern is finishing a successful season and I don’t know what would happen in the future.”—AP
